Fresh Jax Organic Spices #Giveaway...Featuring Garlicky Yukon Gold Potato Salad #potatosalad #garlic #summerfood #summersidedish

The Summer grilling season is here! We're still mostly hanging out at home due to COVID-19...so we love spending time in the back yard grilling yummy meals. Grilled meats need equally fabulous side dishes to accompany them. I love potato salad, so I'm always looking for new ways to serve this quintessential Summer side dish. Today, I'm pairing with Jacksonville, Florida-based Fresh Jax Organic Spices to share my recipe for Garlicky Yukon Gold Potato Salad. Their Salt-Free Garlic Herb Seasoning Blend infuses the mayo-based dressing with big garlic flavor...and buttery Yukon Gold potatoes form the base. Talk about good! This potato salad was very popular at out at-home Memorial Day menu.

Garlicky Yukon Gold Potato Salad
adpated from Cooking Light
Ingredients (makes 6-8 servings):
  • 1 1/4 Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into bite-size cubes
  • 3 large eggs, boiled and chopped
  • 1/3 cup chopped green onion
  • 1/3 cup chopped celery -- approximately 1 rib
  • 2 tbs. chopped flat-leaf parsley
For the dressing:
  • 1/4 cup good-quality mayonnaise
  • 3 Tbs. plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tsp. grainy mustard [NOTE: I use Zatarain's Creole Mustard]
  • 1 Tbs. Fresh Jax Salt Free Herb Seasoning Blend
  • Salt & pepper to taste
Step 1: Chop the green onion, celery, and parsley. Set aside until you're ready to assemble the potato salad. Chop the Yukon Gold potatoes into uniform, bite-size pieces. Place the potatoes in a medium saucepan, cover with water, and add 1 tsp. of salt. Bring the potatoes to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and cook until fork tender -- approximately 10-15 minutes. Drain potatoes and return to the saucepan over no heat.
Step 2: Make the dressing. Add the mayo, Greek yogurt, mustard, Fresh Jax Salt Free Herb Seasoning Blend, and salt & pepper to a bowl. Stir until completely combined.
Step 3: Add the chopped boiled eggs, green onions, and parsley to the warm cooked potatoes. Pour the dressing over and carefully stir to incorporate all of the ingredients. 
Step 4: Refrigerate at least four hours before serving to chill and let the flavors combine -- but overnight is even better if you have time! Just before serving, sprinkle a bit more of the Fresh Jax Salt Free Garlic Seasoning on top of the potato salad.
Man is this potato salad tasty! It's creamy, with perfectly cooked potatoes...Yukon Gold potatoes have a buttery, rich flavor. The garlicky dressing is super creamy thanks to the combination of mayo and Greek yogurt. The green onions and celery add crunch and flavor. This potato salad pairs perfectly with grilled chicken or steak...and any leftovers make a great light lunch the next day.
