1. In a large pot over high heat, bring to a boil potatoes, salt and enough water to cover by 2 inches. Cook until potatoes are tender and easily pierced with a sharp knife, about 20 minutes. Drain and let cool. Slice potatoes crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick rounds and transfer to a serving platter.
2. In a small bowl, mix oil, vinegar, herbs, scallions, bacon 
and capers. Pour over potatoes and toss. Season with 
salt and pepper. Pine nuts make an interesting optional garnish.
