Forget fatty potato skins and French fries...enjoy potatoes the healthy way!

A medium-sized potato contains potassium, fiber, vitamins C and B6, and small amounts of other nutrients. Here, we have a simple and healthy recipe of boiled potatoes dressed with dollops of a Greek yogurt and ricotta mix. It is flavored with lemon and poppy seeds, giving you a hint of citrus tang in every bite.
