Potato Salad with Broccoli and BBQ Mushrooms

I love potato salad but not if it’s goopy. I’ve played around with a few versions and love this one which uses BBQ mushrooms.

Instead of smothering potatoes in a creamy dressing, this recipe uses a simple vinaigrette. Feel free to take a shortcut and sub in 1/3 cup (75 ml) fresh poppyseed dressing instead of the vinaigrette.
