"Mayonnaise: One of the sauces which serve the French in place of a state religion." -Ambrose Bierce
This potato salad can get a bit spicy. Depending on just how spicy your curry powder is, you might want to start with a half a teaspoon and add more. I like it a bit spicier, and the red peppers help bring some sweetness to it, but the most important thing is to cut the potatoes in larger chunks. That way the creamy, soft center of the larger potato will soften the spiciness a bit - it makes a great counterbalance.

|1 lb.||Yukon Gold potatoes|
|3 large||ribs celery (diced)|
|1 large||green onion (sliced crosswise)|
|4 Tbsp.||reduced fat mayonnaise|
|2 Tbsp.||non-fat Greek yogurt|
|1/4 large||red bell pepper (diced)|
|1 tsp||curry powder|
|1/2 tsp||garam masala|
Place the water in a saucepan over high heat.
When the water comes to a boil, add the potatoes. Reduce the heat and simmer the potatoes for 30-40 minutes.
Remove the potatoes from the water and place on a paper towel to cool. When the potatoes are near room temperature, place them in the refrigerator to chill.
When the potatoes are chilled, cut them into 1/2- to 1-inch chunks and place in a large bowl.
Add the celery, onion, mayonnaise, yogurt, bell pepper, curry powder, garam masala, and salt and fold together gently.
