'Lightened Up' Loaded Potato Salad
6-8 small to medium red potatoes - cooked*, cooled and cubed1 cup plain lowfat yogurt
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
8-10 slices cooked turkey bacon, crumbled
6 ounces shredded cheddar cheese, divided (reduced fat to cut calories)
3 green onions, sliced
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1 dash celery salt (can also use seasoning salt)
1 dash garlic powder
1 dash paprika (or cayenne pepper)
- Gently stir together all the ingredients in a large bowl, reserving a little cheddar, green onion and bacon for garnish.
- Transfer to a serving dish.
- Top with reserved shredded cheddar, green onion slices and bacon. Can be served immediately while still warm, or made ahead of time and served cold. It was good both ways!

Verdict? This was a delicious potato salad, and an excellent side to this :)
Yes, I like to see how big I can make my burger!
By making a few ingredient swaps, I was able to greatly reduce the fat and calories in this side dish, without sacrificing flavor. Not to mention, no one realized I had used yogurt and light mayo in the place of the regular stuff! If you are not a fan of turkey bacon, you could use regular bacon, and just reduce the amount as well.
