This potato salad is great for a summer barbecue and really easy to make. I have used lactose free plain yoghurt with mayonnaise to keep the calories lower and chives to flavour the salad. If you serve it slightly warm the mayonnaise soaks into the potatoes and also it means that if you have a problem with resistant starches you can avoid these too. I used Jersey potatoes – the best, but any salad potato will be suitable to use. It really couldn’t be easier to make!



450g small jersey potatoes or small salad potatoes

1 tablespoon of mayonnaise

1 tablespoon of lactose free plain yoghurt

Chopped chives

Salt and pepper to taste



Boil the potatoes in salted water till soft.

Drain well.

Add the yoghurt and mayonnaise to a dish, season and add finely chopped chives.

Mix with the warm potatoes.

I decorated with some thyme leaves and chopped chard stems.

I hope you enjoy it!
