Potato Salad!

I've got to be honest guys, I have never liked potato salad and because of this, I have never made potato salad.  I saw this recipe in my Vegetarian Family Cookbook and decided that just because I don't like something doesn't mean that my children shouldn't try it.  This was hard for me because it meant that I had to actually put the food on my plate and at least appear to be eating it... :/  Along with it we had some unblogworthy (that's a word, right? haha) burgers and some corn on the cob, my favourite kind of summer meal.  Turns out?  I LIKED this potato salad... not loved, but definitely liked.  Don't tell anyone though...

Golden Potato Salad
1 sweet potato
6 white potatoes
1 chopped red pepper
1 cup of peas
3 chopped green onions
1/2 cup mayo (I used vegan mayo because that's what I had)
1/2 cup yogurt (I used 10% MF because that's what I had :P)
3 cloves minced garlic 
Juice from 1/2 lemon
2 tsp dijon mustard
salt and pepper
1 large handful of chopped dill

*Peel and boil potatoes (and sweet potatoes) until done but still firm (You could leave the peel on but my potatoes had thick skin)
*Allow to cool to room temperature and cut into chunks.
*Place in a large bowl with red pepper, peas, and green onion.
*In a small bowl, combine dressing ingredients and stir together.
*Pour into potato mixture and place in refrigerator.
