Warm potato salads make a perfect light luncheon entrée or a side dish for a more complete entrée. This version gets its punch from a sprinkling of goat cheese just before serving. For dessert, offer a custard topped with fruit or maybe something more complex such as a fruit pie with warmed yogurt sauce. The perfect beverage: an iced herbal tea.
