Very good salad and a nice change from the usual potato salad ladden with mayo. I made a few changes based on what I had on hand -- by using 1 green pepper chopped instead of the green peas and I also subbed 1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon and 1/4 teaspoon ground dried savory for the fresh. I also used kosher salt instead of sea salt. Even with these subsitutions this was a delicious salad and no one missed the mayo. Thanks for sharing!
