Pesto Potato Salad

Total time: 25 minutes
Pesto is not just for pasta!  A spoonful in this or that adds a depth of summery basil flavor.  Or use a lot, for this creamy potato salad.  As usual, we try to keep the calories and fat down by using yogurt rather than mayonnaise.  Made from scratch pesto is best, but we are not all blessed with that much basil.  This serves 4.
