Potato Salad With Peas

I could sit down with a huge bowl of this salad  and eat it all day long. It has crunchiness. Creaminess. The pop of peas. And my favorite, Creole mustard. Certainly I’ve seen peas in pasta salad before. But I’d never had potato salad with peas until now. I’ve been missing out, that’s for sure.

I fought the temptation to add crumbled cooked bacon to this wonderful salad. It’s ok if you’re not that strong. Add it and enjoy.
