Creamy spring onion potato salad with egg, mint, and a healthy mayo-free greek yogurt dressing. It’s easy to make, irresistibly delicious,and sure to be a party hit!


  • 1 kg/ 2 lb baby red or white potatoes
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups frozen peas
  • 4 green/ spring onions, sliced
  • 1 cup fresh mint, roughly chopped

 Yogurt dressing 

  • 3/4 cup plain greek yogurt (I used 0.5% fat)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


  1. In a large pot, boil potatoes in salted water until fork-tender (about 20 minutes). Don’t overcook. Refrigerate to cool.
  2. In another saucepan, boil eggs for 8 minutes. Peel, quarter, and set aside.
  3. Boil fresh water, add the peas, then drain and cool in iced water to maintain colour. Drain when cool.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together Greek yogurt, lemon juice, vinegar, mustard, garlic, salt, and pepper until smooth.
  5. Cut cooled potatoes into 1 1/2-inch chunks (either halves or quarters) and transfer to a large bowl.
  6. Combine peas, spring onions, and mint leaves with potatoes. Pour 3/4 of the dressing, another pinch of salt, stir gently, and refrigerate.
  7. Before serving, top with eggs, remaining dressing, and extra spring onions and mint leaves. Enjoy!
