Potatoes with Yogurt Sauce

I haven’t met a potato I would turn down, but I have to admit I have a special thing for new potatoes. They’re small, round and have beautiful deep color. Totally superficial I know but what can I say. They’re pretty. Pretty delicious too. I like to keep a bag or two of a variety of potatoes in my pantry, they go with just about anything and let’s face it they’re fairly cheap. Having them on hand means I’m always looking for new ways to make potatoes. Besides eating them on their own, because for me a big fat creamy potato dripping in butter and okay loaded with cheese is pretty irresistible but probably not the most reasonable dinner choice eh?

These new potatoes kissed with a zippy yogurt sauce are an easy peasy side dish idea. You wouldn’t know if from the taste but this entire dish is lactose free. I used Yoplait’s® new lactose free yogurt in vanilla as the base for this zippy yogurt sauce. “Lactose-free doesn’t have to mean dairy-free. With new Yoplait® Lactose Free yogurt, you can say yes to a smooth, creamy, and great-tasting dairy treat, without the worry.”

  • 4 tablespoons dairy free butter
  • salt/pepper
  • 6 ounces Yoplait lactose free plain yogurt
  • 1 small lime - juiced

What To Do:

    Looks like an excellent side dish! I’ve been using Greek yogurt more and more in place of sour cream…on tacos, eggs, in baked goods, etc. I hadn’t thought to make a sauce using yogurt – this just opened up a new world for me! Thanks!
