Warm Potato Salad with Goat Cheese

Found this on the NY Times website today and I am SO excited to make it. Sounds dee-licious.

1 TBSP white wine vinegar
1 TBSP lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 C low-fat yogurt or buttermilk
2 TBSP olive oil

1 1/2 lbs potatoes (Yukon gold, fingerling or red bliss)
Salt and pepper to taste
4 TBSP red onion, finely chopped, rinsed with cold water and drained
2 TBSP flat-leaf parsley, chopped
2 oz soft goat cheese
2 to 3 sage leaves, cut in thin slivers

To make the dressing, whisk together the lemon juice, vinegar, mustard, salt, pepper, and garlic. Whisk in the yogurt and olive oil. Taste and adjust seasonings, Set aside.

Scrub the potatoes and cut into 3/4-inch chunks. Steam above 1 inch of boiling water until tender but not mushy, about 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the heat and toss while hot in a bowl with salt and pepper to taste, the onions, parsley, goat cheese, and the dressing. Sprinkle the sage over the top and serve.
