Creamy Potato Salad

Servings: 4 people
Carbohydrate Serves: 2.5 per person
(1 carbohydrate serve = 15 grams of total carbohydrate)

When it comes to potatoes, it will depend on your diabetes educator as to whether they suggest you avoid or embrace them (in moderation). Did you know that some potato varieties such as Nicola and Carisma, have a lower glycemic index than standard varieties? Look out for them at your grocer. Turn this gestational diabetes friendly Creamy Potato Salad into a meal by pairing it with a tasty protein such as these Fish Kebabs, or some grilled red meat or chicken. (Main carbohydrate containing ingredients are listed in bold.)


  • ~1kg/ 2 lbs small new potatoes, halved (about 200g/ ~7 ounces per person)
  • 100g/ ~3 ounces plain low fat yoghurt
  • 1 tablespoon seeded mustard
  • 1 large cucumber, cut into small pieces
  • Salt and pepper

Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add potatoes and cook for around 10 minutes until firm but cooked through when skewered. Drain well.

When slightly cooled, gently toss potatoes and cucumber with yoghurt and mustard. Season to taste.

Additional ingredients: Dill and/or finely chopped pickles/ gherkins would work well.

Post-GDM suggestion: Some small crunchy pieces of pan-fried bacon would add smokiness to this simple salad.
