Greek Potato Salad

The classic Greek combination of lemony garlic tzatziki sauce is perfect tossed with cooked potatoes in this delicious Greek Potato Salad.   Paired with feta cheese and Kalamata olives, it takes the potato salad to an epic salad for summer cookouts.

This fresh herb-filled potato salad is tangy, lemony, and full of flavor.  There is a combination of grated cucumber in the tzatziki as well as crunchy chopped cucumbers that add a nice crunch. 

Rather than using mayo in this potato salad, the addition of Greek yogurt makes it light and creamy and you get the benefits of probiotics from the yogurt.  

In addition to the Greek yogurt, by adding Kalamata olives and feta cheese to the potato salad you are adding more Mediterranean-inspired flavors to the dish and amping up the flavor profile.
