A healthier variation of potato salad. Red potatoes are used for their firm texture. This salad does use eggs and turkey bacon, non-fat yogurt and mayonnaise.

In a large saucepan, over high heat, bring potatoes and enough water to cover to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer 15-20 min. Drain potatoes; let cool to room temperature.

Step 2

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine yogurt, scallions, mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, basil, salt and pepper. Fold in eggs and bacon. Add potatoes, and toss gently to coat. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.
