Perhaps one of these may come close to what you're looking for. I favor the second one myself (I tend to have a heavy hand with the Tabasco).

Title: Warm Potato Salad

8 Potatoes
2 Garlic cloves
1 c Minced parsley
1/2 c Oil
3 tb Vinegar
1/2 ts Tabasco (opt)
1/8 ts Ground nutmeg
1 ts Salt
1/2 ts Pepper

Quarter the potatoes and boil until tender.

Meanwhile, peel and mince garlic and place in a small jar. Wash and dry the parsley, cut the stems off, then mince the parsley. Place in the jar with the garlic. Add oil, vinegar, Tabasco if using, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Screw the lid on the jar and shake vigorously to dissolve the salt.

Drain potatoes and, when they are just cool enough to handle, slice them thinly onto a serving platter or into a bowl. Drizzle with dressing and serve hot, warm or cold.

Serves 6 and makes great leftovers. You may also add various fresh herbs thyme, marjoram or dill, for example, if you have them in your garden.

Serve the potatoes with roasted chicken and asparagus.

Title: Spanish Potato Salad
Categories: Salads, Side dish, Vegetables
Yield: 4 servings

1 lb New potatoes
4 tb Olive oil
1 tb Wine vinegar
2 ea Garlic cloves, crushed
1 sm Red pepper
1 tb Chives, chopped

Scrape the potatoes (I don't). Cook until tender, but do not overcook them or they will break up.

Mix together the oil & vinegar. Toss the potatoes while still hot. Stir in the garlic & red pepper. Sprinkle with the chopped chives. Serve while still warm.

**Mark's note: This potato salad is a refreshing change from other potato salads. I found it was actually very good even after it had gone cold, though I did always serve it at room temperature rather than chilled.
