I found this recipe in Gourmet magazine and I *love* it - a spicy vinegar based potato salad that has a great kick and nice flavor.

These were excellent - my picky son (who NEVER willingly eats potatoes) asked for seconds. I made them with fingerling Yukon gold's cut into thirds after boiling in salted water till tender. Matched well with the tandoori chicken legs we had. Will definitely make again!
