This nutritious and delicious Broccoli and Potato Salad is an excellent option for anyone looking to maintain a healthy diet while enjoying a flavorful meal. The combination of fresh vegetables, tangy pickles, and a creamy dressing makes this salad a delightful dish that can aid in weight management. Here’s how to make it.


  • 400g broccoli, cut into florets
  • 2 small potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and diced
  • 3-4 pickled cucumbers, diced
  • 4 tablespoons canned corn, drained
  • A bunch of parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 6 tablespoons thick yogurt (preferably Greek yogurt for extra protein)
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon mustard sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Black pepper, to taste


  1. Prepare the Vegetables:
    • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
    • Add the broccoli florets and boil for about 3-4 minutes until they are bright green and slightly tender. Use a slotted spoon to transfer them to a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process and preserve their color. Drain and set aside.
    • In the same boiling water, add the diced potatoes and carrots. Cook until they are just tender, about 10-12 minutes. Drain and allow them to cool slightly.
  2. Mix the Salad Ingredients:
    • In a large salad bowl, combine the cooled broccoli, potatoes, and carrots.
    • Add the diced pickled cucumbers and canned corn.
  3. Prepare the Dressing:
    • In a separate small bowl, mix together the thick yogurt, mayonnaise, mustard sauce, minced garlic, salt, and black pepper until well combined.
  4. Combine and Chill:
    • Pour the dressing over the vegetables in the salad bowl. Add the chopped parsley and gently toss everything together until well coated with the dressing.
    • Cover the salad and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to allow the flavors to meld together.
  5. Serve:
    • Serve the salad chilled as a refreshing side dish or a light main course. It pairs wonderfully with grilled meats or fish if you’re not strictly vegetarian.
