1.  Place potatoes in a large pot, cover with cold water, and bring to a boil.  Add 2 teaspoons salt, reduce heat, and simmer until potatoes are just tender 15-20 minutes depending on size.  Drain and run under cold water to cool.
2.  Meanwhile in a large bowl, whisk together sour cream, mayonnaise, mustard, lemon zest and juice, and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and ground pepper; stir in celery.
3.  Peel potatoes and cut into bite size pieces and then add to dressing and gently toss to combine.  Fold in chives.  Put in fridge for a couple of hours for flavors to absorb.

After you enjoy your meal, why not read a good book?
