Story behind this recipe

Here's my recipe for you - simple but tasty.

Ingredients

3 lb potatoes, boiled until soft but not too mushy (about 20 minutes), and then cut into 1-inch chunks

1-2 whole dill pickles, chopped

Dressing:
1 cup plain yogurt
1/3 cup mayonnaise (reduced-fat works fine)
1-2 tbsp yellow mustard (to taste, less if using dijon-style)
1 tsp dried dill weed
1 tbsp dried chives
Salt and ground black pepper to taste
Dash cayenne pepper (optional)
