  • 1 1/2 lbs. russet potatoes
  • 1 cup low-fat 2% Greek yogurt* (such as Chobani, FAGE, Oikos or YoPlait)

  3. Microwave on high for 10 to 12 minutes depending on strength of microwave.
  4. Use oven mitts to remove dish from microwave; carefully remove cover from dish due to steam build-up and let cool.
  5. Cut potatoes into bite-size pieces and place in a large bowl with remaining ingredients; stir well to mix.
  6. Sprinkle with cheese and oregano.
  7. This salad may be served right away, but is best if refrigerated for at least one hour to allow flavors to blend.
