Lemony Potato Salad

These days my husband and I are trying to watch what we eat. Some of us more than others. By which I mean that I am really bad about staying away from stuff I like. Like massive quantities of cheese and mayonnaise. But, in the interest of keeping the both of us around on Earth longer, I went looking for a potato salad recipe that didn’t have any mayo in it. And TA DA! I found this on MyRecipes.com

Ordinarily, I leave recipes alone until I’ve made them once. However, this one looked like it needed a little extra crunch. So I added red bell pepper and radish slices. And some fresh dill I have running rampant in my garden. Maybe next time I’ll add a bit of celery too.¬†Potato Salad
