Sweet Pepper Potato Salad

You can never have too many potato salad recipes. I love my Potato Salad with Fresh Dill, but this time I wanted to add some more texture and zestiness to the salad. This lead me to creating this Sweet Pepper Potato Salad. This salad has that same fresh taste from the garden fresh dill, but is given more flavour and a bit of crunch from the addition of the sweet red and yellow bell peppers. There is also a bit of a bite from the mild onion flavour from the green onions/scallions.

1.5 Il. mini red potatoes
1/4 cup red bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup yellow bell pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely minced or pureed
2-3 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
1 green onion (scallions), finely chopped
about 3/4 cup mayonnaise
2-3 tsp red wine vinegar
freshly ground salt and pepper to taste

1. Place potatoes in water and allow to boil. Once water has boiled, reduce heat to medium and cook for about 20-25 minutes, or until tender when inserted with a fork. Cut into quarters and let sit for about 5 minutes.

2. While potatoes are still warm in temperature, stir in red and yellow peppers. Add the garlic, dill, green onion, and vinegar. Add the mayonnaise in small amounts at a time, making sure not to overdress. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Thanks for the advice for the herb garden! I guess I'll buy seeds (??) and some containers (which I bet I already have) and do that next spring. I can't wait - and that is right up my alley!! And another potato salad recipe - you bet! Bring it on!!! That looks amazing ~ Thanks again :)
