Potato Salad (Mayonnaise Free)

I haven't had potato salad in 8 1/2 months since I haven't been able to eat eggs! I have always really enjoyed potato salad, especially since I discovered adding carrots for some extra goodness. I stumbled across a recipe online for a dijon mustard based sauce that actually turned out quite well.

3 lbs. yukon gold potatoes, cooked in salted water then cubed
3 large stalks celery, diced
2 large carrots, ground in food processor
1 cup pickles, ground in food processor
1/2 cup pickle juice
1 Tbsp. salt
1 Tbsp. onion powder
2 Tbsp. dijon mustard
2 Tbps. yellow mustard
1 Tbsp. white wine vinegar

Combine the last 6 ingredients in the blender and process til creamy and emulsified. Add to the warm potatoes so the vinagrette will soak in. Add in the remaining ingredients and mix to combine. Adjust seasonings as needed. I've been gobbled this up, it turned out pretty tasty. Not as good as mayonnaise, as I am a MAYO girl! But will work until I can eat eggs again. :-)
