Ingredients

  • 3 pounds baby gold and/or baby white potatoes quartered
  • 3 celery stalks chopped
  • 3 green onions diced
  • 1/2 small red onion diced
  • 6 hardboiled eggs roughly chopped
  • 2 avocados chopped
  • 4 slices of bacon cooked and chopped

Dressing

  • 1 cup mayo I use light mayo
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt I use 0 percent fat
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika optional but highly recommended

Instructions

  • Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with water. Cover pot and boil potatoes for 5-8 minutes until fork-tender (but not overcooked). Strain liquid and run potatoes under cold water in a colander. Set aside to dry slightly. Once liquid has drained, place potatoes in a large bowl. 
  • Add celery, green onions, red onions, eggs, avocados (see note), and bacon to the bowl. 
  • Whisk together mayo, Greek yogurt, vinegar, mustard, garlic powder, salt and pepper, and paprika. Pour over potatoes etc and stir gently to combine everything. 
  • Cover and chill for at least 1 hour or up to 8 hours before serving. 

Notes

If you are making this potato salad ahead of time and plan on not serving after 1 hour of chilling time, I recommend reserving the avocados until the end, just before serving, to keep them from browning.
