Buttermilk Potato Salad

Using high-protein, low-fat buttermilk makes this potato salad taste richer than it is. Leaving the skins on the potatoes means more fiber and flavor.

Buttermilk Potato Salad

Source: Martha Stewart Living, August 2009


  • 3 pounds small red potatoes
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon creme fraiche or sour cream
  • 1/3 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
  • 2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup dill sprigs
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh chives


  1. Cover potatoes with water by 1 1/2 inches in a 2-quart pot, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer until potatoes can be pierced easily with the tip of a knife, about 20 minutes. Drain, and let cool completely. Cut potatoes into halves, or quarters if large.

  2. Stir potatoes, creme fraiche, buttermilk, horseradish, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Gently stir in herbs just before serving.
