Purple Potato Salad (Mayo Free!)

It's that time of the year again...  Super Bowl time!  While I don't root for a team, I have always been a fan of football (as a sport) and, as usual, enjoy any excuse for themed food.  Last year I shared four tasty dips for your gathering but this year I am keeping it a bit more simple.  This lovely purple potato salad is not only festive in appearance but also is better for you as it lacks any faux mayo and other processed ingredients.  A fun, colorful and tasty side to go with any of your meals.


4 medium purple potatoes (also called black potatoes)
1/4 onion, minced
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
1 teaspoon of grain mustard
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1/2 tablespoon of parsley
1 tablespoon of dill
Salt and pepper to taste

Begin by rinsing and chopping your potatoes into medium to small sized cubes.  Place potato cubes in a pot of boiling water and boil for 5 minutes until the potatoes begin to soften slightly.  Place in drainer and rinse immediately with cold water to stop the cooking.  Now, whisk all the remaining ingredients together in a bowl. Toss with potatoes and allow to sit in fridge for at least fifteen minutes.  Serve cold and enjoy!
