  • 3 g Large Red Potatoes 500
  • 1 Cup Chicken/turkey sausage sliced
  • 1/2 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 2 tsps Garlic minced
  • Salt
  • For the dressing:
  • 1/2 Cup Non-fat Plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp Reduced-fat Buttermilk
  • 2 tsps Buttermilk Ranch dressing powdered mix
  • Pinch of pepper
  • 2 tsp Fresh dill minced *


  • Bring alarge pot of salted water to a boil, and cook the potatoes until they are just fork tender, about 12 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  • While the potatoes boil, heat your grillto medium/high and cook the sliced chicken sausage until it just has nice grill marks, only about 1-2 minutes per side. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  • Cut the boiled potatoes into quarters** and toss with the olive oil, garlic and a pinch of salt.
  • Place them onto the grill (still at medium/high heat) cut side down, and cook until they also have nice grill marks. This takes about 1-3 minutes per side. Make sure to flip them so both sides of the potato get a nice, crisp grill.
  • While the potatoes are grilling, mix all the dressing ingredients in a large bowluntil well combined.
  • Toss in the grilled potatoes and sausage and stir until everything is well coated.
  • DEVOUR immediately. ***


* I prefered with just a little bit more dill than this, but Mr. FFF liked this amount. It's easier to add more than to take it out!
** The potatoes are easier to grill when they are a little on the chunkier side. If you would like them smaller, cut them after you grill.
***This dish is best served immediately, as the potatoes lose their crunch, and the Greek yogurt begins to dry out once it sits for a while. So, toss with the dressing just before serving.
