Lemon Parsley Potatoes

New potatoes are something it is hard to get enough of so, when you've enjoyed them hot with mint and butter and cold with mayonnaise, here is something a little different: take parsley, lemon and lots of freshly ground pepper and make a dressing. This goes particularly well with simply cooked fish.

Serves 3-4
