Creamy Pesto Caprese Potato Salad
I love Caprese salad and I love potato salad, so is it any wonder that I adore this Creamy Pesto Caprese Potato Salad. It is a delicious salad to bring to your next picnic or potluck dinner.
To make this, start by bringing potatoes to a boil. As the potatoes are cooking, prepare the pesto by blitzing ingredients in a food processor. Add Greek yogurt to the pesto and blitz until completely combined. Assemble the salad by combining cooled potatoes, tomatoes, and mozzarella. Add the creamy pesto dressing on top. Carefully fold the pesto into the potatoes, making sure to coat evenly. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
