Who doesn’t love potato salad, for me, it is a special treat. I have fond memories of my Grandmother Ethel making potato salad, and having for breakfast the next day. She would always fuss at me that potato salad wasn’t a good breakfast food, but it never stopped me. If you are looking for a lighter potato salad, this one is perfect. There is no fat in this potato salad, and anyone can prepare this potato salad.

Sweet Tomatoes Southern Dill Potato Salad is a great potato salad that is prepared simply. It is made with yogurt instead of mayonnaise which is typically used for potato salad. It really let’s the flavor of the potato come through simply. I love this potato salad it is simple to put together and it tastes wonderful. If you like the tangy flavor of Greek yogurt you may want to use it instead of regular yogurt.

Please note Sweet Tomatoes is the name of the restaurant, there are no tomatoes in the soup. I typically name copycat recipes using the name of the restaurant so you can easily find the recipe.

  • 2 pounds red potatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups whole fat plain yogurt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons teaspoons dried dill or teaspoon fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • Cube red potatoes into 1/2 inch cubes, place in a pot and cover with water, potatoes are served with the skins on. Boil potatoes until soft. Drain potatoes, and place into the fridge. When the potatoes have cooled place into a bowl, add yogurt, dill, and salt. Mix together well, and season for salt and pepper if needed. 
  • This tastes better when the flavors meld together. While this is how they serve their potato salad, I think radishes, or even a few green onions would make this a nice change.

    This was a nice mild potato salad. Perfect for people who hate mustard. The redeeming quality of a potato salad when it does not contain mustard is that when my two-year-old dumped over the serving bowl it did not stain my mother in law’s table cloth.
