Ingredients

1 lb. red potatoes, cut into ½-in. cubes
1 lb. Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into ½-in. cubes
2 tsp. cumin
¾ tsp. salt
1 can (15.25 oz.) no-salt-added corn, drained
1 can (4.5 oz.) chopped mild green chilies, drained
¾ cup chopped scallions
⅓ cup (1½ oz.) slivered almonds, toasted
1 cup 2% Greek yogurt
1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp. milk

Directions

  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the potatoes until fork-tender, about 7 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small un-greased skillet, stir the cumin over medium heat until lightly toasted. Scrape out of the pan as soon as it is toasted.
  3. Drain the hot potatoes and transfer to a bowl. Sprinkle with the cumin and salt. Add the corn, chilies, scallions and almonds, and toss to blend.
  4. In a small bowl, blend the yogurt, mustard, oil and milk. Add to the potatoes and toss well to coat. Serve warm, at room temperature or chilled.

Tip: You may think you have too much dressing when you first make the salad and the potatoes are still hot. But it will be absorbed into the potatoes as it sits.
