1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

2 tsps capers

3 tablespoons non-fat sour cream

2 tablespoons nonfat yogurt

2 tsps tarragon vinegar (Heinz)

Few dashes cayenne pepper

Dash salt

Freshly ground black pepper

In a large bowl, mix the dill, parsley, and capers with the sour cream, yogurt, vinegar and cayenne. When potatoes are cooked, drain and cut into quarters and mix with the dressing.

Tofu Potato Salad with Dill


5 large potatoes 1/2 tsp. salt

10 oz. soft (MoriNu) lite tofu 2 to 3 cloves garlic, minced

Water for steaming 4 Tbs. fresh dill weed

2 to 3 Tbs. brown rice vinegar (or 1-1/2 Tbs dried dill)

or lemon juice Water if needed for blending

2 tsp. low-sodium tamari 4 stalks celery, minced

2 tsp. prepared mustard 1/2 cup minced fresh parsley


Bake, boil, microwave, or pressure cook potatoes until tender. Run under cold water to remove skins. Chill. Meanwhile, steam tofu for 10 minutes. While tofu is cooking, place rice vinegar (lemon juice), oil (if desired), tamari, mustard, salt and garlic in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Drain tofu, crumble and add to blender or food processor along with dill. Blend until smooth and creamy. You may need to add a few tablespoons of water (up to 1/4 cup) depending on how soft the tofu is and how well your blender purees. You will want it a little "loose" and liquidy, as the potatoes will absorb some of the moisture. Chop chilled potatoes into 1-inch cubes and place in a large mixing bowl. Pour tofu mixture on top of potatoes and mix, evenly coating potatoes. Stir in celery and parsley. Be careful not to mash potatoes as you mix.

Makes 6 side-dish servings.

Tomatillo Potato Salad


Tomatillo sauce

10 tomatillos, husked

2 jalapenos, veins & seed removed

1/2 large onion, cut into large chunks

3 peeled cloves garlic (I used 5 since mine were small :-)

large bunch cilantro (I used about 1 cup lightly packed)

optional cumin...I forgot & didn't miss it.

Put tomatillos, jalapenos, onion & garlic into boiling water. Simmer (don't boil) until tomatillos turn bright green, then olive green(took about 10 minutes, the tops of mine never turned olive green).Don't overcook or the the tomatillos will split open. Take vegies out w/slotted spoon into blender, add cilantro (I just took off the thickest stems) and puree. Add cumin and more (raw) peppers or garlic if you want it spicier. Add cooking liquid to thin sauce if necessary.

Potato salad w/tomatillo sauce

1-1.5lb red potatoes

sliced radishes (I sub'd cucumbers)

2 thinly sliced scallions or chives

1/2 green pepper, chopped (I used red)

Slice potatoes into 1/4" rounds, and steam till soft (about 15-20 minutes). Toss gently w/rest of ingredients and as much sauce as you want (you will probably have extra sauce left over).
