Potato Salad with Herbs and Grilled Summer Squash

This is a really good fresh tasting potato salad, and I will definitely make this again! My changes: I used zucchini instead of yellow squash and cooked it in a grill pan; I left out the tarragon and increased the basil; and I substituted 1 tablespoon drained capers for the cornichons.
