1 1/2 pounds yellow or white potatoes

1 cup non-fat plain yogurt*

1/3 cup minced red onion

1/3 cup thinly sliced celery

3/4 cup coarsely chopped and lightly packed fresh spinach

1/4 cup diced bell pepper

3 tablespoons shredded carrots

1 tablespoon snipped fresh basil

1/2 of a (6.5-oz.) jar coarsely chopped marinated artichoke hearts (including liquid)

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Freshly ground pepper to taste

Chopped fresh parsley


Place whole potatoes (do not poke) into microwave-safe dish. Cover dish. (If covering dish with plastic wrap, poke small hole in plastic). Microwave on high for 10 to 12 minutes depending on strength of microwave. Use oven mitts to remove dish from microwave; carefully remove cover from dish due to steam build-up and let cool. Cut potatoes into bite-size pieces and place in a large bowl with remaining ingredients; stir well to mix. This salad may be served right away, but is best if refrigerated for at least one hour to allow flavors to blend.

*Russets or red potatoes can be substituted
