Potato Salad with Mint and Peas

Potato Salad With Mint and Peas Recipe
Oxmoor House
Most potato salads use mayonnaise or sour cream as the base for their dressing. These spuds are tossed in a minty oil-and-vinegar dressing that coats each bite–but with less fat than the creamy traditional dressing.
