Place potatoes in a large saucepan.  Fill with water and swish around drain, rinse repeat to remove the excess starch.  Fill the pan at least 2 finger lengths with water above the rinsed potatoes. Place the potatoes over high heat.  Pour enough salt to make the water taste of the ocean. Bring the potatoes to a boil. Remove from heat and let sit covered for 8-10 minutes or a knife easily pierces the potato.  While potatoes are sitting. Combine all of the remaining ingredients in a bowl except the zest. Whisk to combine. When potatoes are tender drain well. Pour the dressing over the potatoes and toss gently to combine. Chill in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes.  Serve in a large bowl with the zest sprinkled for garnish.
