This is a great lighter alternative to the standard German potato salad. It retains the sweetness of the other recipe but replaces the meat and smokiness with a hint of spice. There is no substitute for any German mustard, but if you must use dijon. Any type of potato, except waxy, will work for this.

Place potatoes in a bowl and pour sauce over. Stir well, adjust seasoning, and let come to room temperature before serving.
