Potatoes with Lemon Vinaigrette dressing

  This is a vibrant spring recipe that will give a burst of lemon flavor to any meal. The taste comes not only from the lemon juice but also from the lemon zest...(which is the yellow skin on the lemon). The praper way of zesting a lemon is scraping the yellow part of the lemon....the white part is very bitter, so avoid scarping any of it.
