Mayo Free Potato Salad Inspired By A Picnic Dinner

I love potatoes! Potato salad is particularly something I love in the summer. There are so many different ingredients you can incorporate, not to mention the types of potatoes you can use: purple, sweet or regular red skinned ones.

Last night I made a batch of potato salad inspired by one of my other favorite summer things: picnic dinners. 

Here's what happened: I had an incredibly frustrating time shopping for a swimming suit Monday after work. To remedy the situation, I treated myself to a pedicure and then picked up a bunch of things at World Market for a picnic dinner. There were chips and salsa, olives, salami, smoked gouda, hard cider, and a few items from my fridge (cucumbers and hummus).

Last night I took some of the leftovers from the picnic dinner and turned them into a potato salad.

Combine all ingredients being careful not to mash the potatoes.

I'm having the leftovers of this salad for lunch today and am so happy about it.
