Yet another "by accident" recipe that has become one of my favorites! For a friend's party I made a dip which I saw on Food Network that sounds yummy and healthy. Fast forward a few days to a craving I was having for chicken salad and my desire to not use mayonnaise.

I chose regular beets and red skinned potatoes, although any variety of white potatoes would work just as well.
