Serious Salads: Patricia Wells's Warm Potato Salad with Capers, Scallions & Mint

This warm potato salad, adapted from one of my favorite cookbooks, Salad as a Meal: Healthy Main Dish Salads for Every Season by Patricia Wells, is a welcome change from the typical American-style potato salad loaded with mayonnaise.

Wells dresses steamed potatoes in a sharp and tangy mustard vinaigrette studded with scallions and briny capers from her Provence garden. I have to caution that it's not for the faint of heart—the dressing is very assertive and there are a lot of capers. If you want to tone it down, cut back on the mustard and capers or add a few teaspoons of honey.
