Potato Salad With Chives & Peas

Let’s face it: When the weather heats up and you’re gathering outdoors, a cold and crunchy side dish like potato salad is in order. All too often though, it's weighed down with mayonnaise and overwrought with unnecessary spices. Thankfully, Chicago-based lawyer Kristin Silverman of The Kitchen Sink Recipes has developed this lighter version boasting tangy Greek yogurt and horseradish. With a dash of bright color from the peas and chives and some crunch from the celery, this is sure to become your new summer go-to.
