  3. Transfer to bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let sit at least 5 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine lemon zest, pepper flakes, vinegar, mustard, remaining 3 tablespoons oil, and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper. 
  5. Halve potatoes, or quarter if large.
  6. Chop leeks and toss with vinaigrette, then fold in potatoes.
