This is a recipe that I just made by accident and it is fantastic for those of us on a Low Carbohydrate diet.

Good recipe! It is great as is, but I ended up adding some seasonings to our taste (1 tsp. mustard & some Tony's seasoning), and it actually tastes like delicious potato salad to us. This recipe provided a very tasty low carb lunch. Thanks!
