  2. In a salad bowl, combine the potatoes, sour cream, yogurt, and chives; toss gently to coat. Add salt, and pepper to taste; refrigerate until chilled.

This is a really good potato salad. I went through the reviews and so many people added a bunch of stuff to this like bacon, eggs, cheese. It's a totally different salad at that point. This is meant to be light! I added a little more chives and let it sit overnight. The flavor of the chives really came through. I added a little Miracle Whip for some added zip - not much, just a couple of tablespoons.

This was a very bland salad. I added a generous amount of dill weed and some bacon and it just didn't help. Sorry, I won't make it again.

Really good. The fresh chives really add to the dish. Added more than called for though. I don't like mayonaisse based potato salad and this was perfect. I liked the creamy taste and the sour cream and yogurt match well together.

I added bacon bits and shredded cheddar cheese. My kids won't touch most potato salads, but LOVED this one!

I used mayo in place of yogurt and added dill pickles and celery...and a generous helping of mustard cause I like it....very good!

Added dill, a tbsp or so of red wine vinegar and substituted garlic salt for regular. A great healthier recipe for potato salad! Everyone liked it!

My family loves this when I make it. I also add a little dill weed and some cracked black pepper. This is so good and easy!

I was very tired when I made this salad and accidentally used mayonnaise instead of sour cream and it was still very good. I'm going to try it next time using the sour cream as stated in the recipe. I also threw in some celery to add some extra veggies. I think I'll also add some hard boiled eggs next time also.
