Pickled Potato Salad

We all have our own versions of potato salads, this one surprised me in how it was made by my man the other day...all in one pot with the added twist of pickles made for a very colorful potato salad that was zesty and tasty - perfect for BBQs and a way to sneak your kids into eating their vegetables. Very easy - and very good. Enjoy!

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 large carrots

  • 1 cup frozen peas

  • 1 large crisp dill pickle

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (light version just fine)

  • 1/4 cup dijon mustard

  • salt and pepper

  • splash of vinegar
