Perfect as a side on a summer's day, this healthy potato salad recipe contains just 1g of saturated fat per serving.

¾ lb medium red potatoes, with skin
¾ lb medium white potatoes, with skin
1 cup raw carrot, chopped
1 cup green beans, chopped
4 oz 0% Greek yogurt
1 tsp salt
4 large eggs, hard-boiled
1 tsp ground black pepper
2 tbsp real mayonnaise


Wash the potatoes and boil until tender (insert a knife to check if they are soft enough), and let cool.

Wash the green beans and carrots and combine with the potatoes, then season with salt and pepper.

Mix the Greek yogurt in with the mayonnaise and dress the potatoes.

Chop the hard-boiled eggs and carefully fold in to the salad.
