Step 1

Preheat your oven to 425°F, then line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper, and set them aside. Scrub the potatoes and rinse them well, then put them in a large pot, and fill it with water until about 1 inch above the potatoes.

Step 2

Place the pot on a stove over high heat, then bring it to a boil, lower the heat to medium-high, and allow it to cook for about 12-15 minutes or until fork tender. Once done cooking, drain off all the water, then place the cooked potatoes into the prepared baking sheets spacing them about 2 inches apart, and smash them flat with a fork.

Step 3

Drizzle some oil over the potatoes and rub them well, then season them with salt and pepper, and then place them in the preheated oven. Allow them to bake for about 45 minutes to 1 hour until crispy and golden brown, then while waiting prepare the dressing.

Step 4

In a large mixing bowl, add the yogurt, mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic, cucumber, red onion, chives, green onions, parsley, dill, salt, and pepper, then mix everything until uniform and combined, and set it aside.

Step 5

Once the potatoes are done baking, let them cool down for a few minutes, then chop them into bite-sized pieces, and put them into a large mixing bowl along with the dressing mixture. Place the salad in the refrigerator, then let it chill until ready to serve, and enjoy!
