  6. NOTES : The trick to making low-fat salad dressing is obvious: Do not use high-fat mayonnaise. But you do not want to simply substitute low-fat mayonnaise. It just doesn't taste as good as the real thing. This potato salad had tasters in The Times Test Kitchen coming back for seconds-and these weren't weight watchers. They liked the flavor. Low-fat mayonnaise is mixed with nonfat yogurt, chopped tarragon and garlic, lemon juice and a touch of Dijon mustard. Artichoke hearts, celery and green peas are added to the potatoes for color and crunch. Red rose, yellow rose and Yukon golds are all good boiling choices for potato salad. Cook them only till they are fork tender, then drain immediately to prevent them from becoming water logged and mushy. It's best to toss the potatoes with the dressing while they're still hot to allow the flavors to penetrate the potatoes. When ready to serve, spoon the well-chilled potato salad on a platter of romaine leaves and surround it with tomato slices and sprig
