Red Potato Salad

I went to a Father's Day dinner at my boyfriend's parent's house.  I offered to bring two side dishes.  I wanted something fresh but hearty.  I found a pretty healthy Paula Deen recipe that had recieved some rave reviews.  I absolutely loved this salad and it was a hit with everyone. 

Red Potato Salad

12 cups cubed red potatoes
1 cup chopped green bell pepper (about 1 medium)
1/2 cup minced red onion
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
Fresh Dill

Cook potatoes, covered in boiling water, 10 minutes, or until tender; drain well and cool.

In a large bowl, combine potatoes, bell pepper and onion.   

In a small bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients.  Pour over potato mixture, tossing gently to coat.   

 Sprinkle with dill and green onions, cover and refrigerate.
