This recipe is from Jack McDavid, a wonderful chef in PA. I have made this very pretty colorful salad with red potatoes too.

I don't have a grill, so I just boiled the potatoes. The dressing has such a wonderful, fresh taste, due to the lemon juice. The Dijon adds just the right amount of "zip". I would, though, prefer less celery seeds. Good recipe!
