2 lbs white or purple small potatoes, unpeeled

½ cup sweet peas
¼ cup olive oil
3 Tbs Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tsp kosher salt
2 oz white onion, minced
1 tsp Dijon or fine brown mustard
Prep Time: 15min | Cook Time: 35min
In a stock pot: add potatoes and carrot and water to cover by 1″. Bring to a boil and cook until tender but still firm (~15-20 minutes).
Remove potatoes and carrots from boiling water. Rinse and cool by submerging in cold water. Peel and dice to 1/4″ small dice pieces. Reserve in a bowl.
In a large bowl, combine mustard, olive oil, cider vinegar and salt. Whisk to create a emulsified dressing.
Very finely mince the onion. Finely dice the pickles. Add onion, pickel and sweet peas to the dressing.
Boil the red beets for 25 minutes, then peel and dice the beets to 1/4″ (same as the potatoes and carrots). Add to the dressing and stir.
Combine the dressing with the potatoes and carrots. Fold to incorporate fully.
Chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour until served. Marinating chilled overnight produces superior flavor.
Add additional salt to taste.
