SWEET /DILL POTATO SALAD

I created this potato salad from a combination of using both Sweet Gherkin Pickles and Dill Pickles along with chopped Match Stick Carrots to add some extra crunch. I also added a grated Onion but squeezed out the excess liquid to prevent the potato salad from being watery.

I put it all together just before dinner time since my husband prefers Potato Salad at Room temperature. It was very good and the chunky eggs always adds a bit of extra flavor. We surely enjoyed it with the thick Juicy Grilled Garlic Pork Chops and Green Beans. Nice quick dinner idea in no time.
