Lemon and Chive Warm Potato Salad

 We are certainly having a strange spring.  Warm, hot, cool, cold... sometimes we don't know what the next day will bring us. I am not ready for your typical picnic chilled potato salad yet so I decided to try a warm potato salad instead since it was a bit chilly today. This potato salad was fantastic paired with some burgers and sausages.  The warmness of this salad was very appealing too. The trick is to get the potatoes strained and then put them back into the same hot pot you boiled them in so any residual water evaporates. Then add the prepared dressing to the hot potatoes so they soak up the dressing.  You will end up with some very delicious and flavorful potatoes.  This is one potato salad that is good anytime of year.

2lbs potatoes (I like thin skinned potatoes that you don't have to peel)
2Tbs finely diced red onion
2Tbs mince chives
1 stalk celery finely diced
1 Tbs capers (optional)
1 Tbs finely chopped fresh parsley
salt and black pepper to taste

2 Tbs lemon juice (fresh)
1 Tbs canola oil
2 Tbs mayonnaise
1 tsp honey
1 Tbs Dijon mustard
salt and black pepper to taste

Wash potatoes and cut into half or quarter into large cubes.  Boil in salted water until fork tender. Drain well and put potatoes back into the hot pot.  Add onion, celery and capers.  Blend dressing well and add to potatoes. Toss well and serve salad warm.  Enjoy.
