fresh grind black pepper to taste

1- In extra-large skillet, over medium heat, melt olive oil.

2- Add peppers and onion, stir to coat and saute till partially wilted.

3- Add potato cubes and sprinkle salt and garlic powder over all. Stir to coat, even out in pan without patting down and cook till lightly browned on one side.

4- Flip and fry on opposite side, browning as desired, stirring as needed

5- Add zucchini, stir easily into potatoes, even out in pan and cook till tender not mushy.

• Zucchini doesn’t take long to cook.

6- Add fresh grind black pepper to taste.

7- Combine mustard and vinegar in bowl and whisk till smooth. Pour over potato, stirring gently till coated. Cook about 5 minutes longer and serve.
