Fresh herbs and lemon potato salad

Author Notes: I bought too many lemons and wanted to use some. Wandering in my small garden for inspiration, I discovered that the fresh herbs finally were growing. I used two different varieties of thyme. You could use Dijon mustard instead of yellow, but French's yellow mustard is my husband's favorite. With lemon juice and vinegar, this is healthier than my usual potato salad with a lot of mayonnaise.Mamamel
