Warba Potato Salad

Steam a potful of potatoes until tender.

Drain and spread out to cool on a cutting  board or counter.

Cut into smaller chunks.

Mix together equal parts sour cream and plain yogurt, and stir into potatoes.

A quarter cup of each will do for about 3 cups of potatoes.

Add chopped green onions and salt and pepper to taste.
