blue-potato-salad recipe

I liked the look and sound of the original Honey Mustard Potato 
salad, and even tried it as submitted. But although I appreciate the 
mid week ease of using frozen prepared potatoes, I've never found any 
that are fat free. So, in an adaptive mood, desiring to trial a 
potential Halloween potluck dish, being without any celery, and 
cooking for someone who has a little trouble with un-cooked bell 
peppers, here's what I came up with. The recipe's been formatted by 
Micro Cookbook V. I served it at a post balloon flight this morning, 
and it got 'keeper recipe' reviews from all tasters (not a VLF Vegetarian in 
the group).
