Spicy Greek Yoghurt Potato Salad (with Jalapeños)

This spicy Greek yoghurt potato salad is the perfect accompaniment for grilled chicken and is simple to whip up.

When the weather warms, we like nothing better than a barbecue. Chicken is our favourite, go-to meat, and we invariably have it slathered with our tangy marinade. We usually like a potato or pasta dish to go with it. My boys love shop-bought potato gratin and sometimes we do a homemade version, but I like cold salads with my grilled meats. That’s where this un-fancy, deliciously spicy side dish comes in.

Although there is some mayonnaise in this, the Greek yoghurt gives the potato salad a gorgeous creamy taste without needing to go heavy handed on the mayo. The spice comes from jalapeños along with a touch of cayenne. There’s also some red onion and red pepper thrown in for good measure.
