Lemon Potato Salad

Cath, here is the lemon potato salad recipe courtesy of bill's open kitchen. We're really going on a citrus kick this month.

1 lb 10 oz new potatoes
1 t. salt for boiling water
1/3 c. extra virgin olive oil
1/2 c. lemon juice
1 t. sumac (optional)
1 small green pepper, finely diced
2 large red chillies, seeded and finely diced
1/4 c. mint, chopped
1/2 c. parsley leaves
6 scallions, finely sliced

Cook potatoes until tender. Remember to undercook the potatoes a little because they will continue to cook when removed from water.
Combine olive oil, lemon juice and sumac. Season with salt and pepper. Pour half on the hot potatoes and stir gently. Cool. Add green pepper, chili, mint, parsley, scallion and remaining dressing and stir.

bill paired this with a seared snapper with a wedge of lemon and this refreshing potato salad.
