Buttermilk-Herb Potato Salad

This Buttermilk-Herb Potato Salad gets all of its extra flavor from fresh herbs! No worries about fattening mayo; the creamy punch comes from crème fraîche (or non-fat sour cream).

Buttermilk-Herb Potato Salad

3 pounds small red potatoes, quartered

1/2 cup crème fraîche (or nonfat sour cream)

1/3 cup fat-free buttermilk

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill

1-1/4 teaspoons kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 large garlic clove, minced

Place potatoes in a Dutch oven and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes or until just tender; drain. Cool for 30 minutes. Combine crème fraîche and remaining ingredients in a large bowl; stir with a whisk. Add warm potatoes; toss gently to coat. Serve at room temperature or chilled. Serves 8
