For the Dressing
1/3 cup yogurt
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbs. fresh lime juice
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 tsp. honey
2 tsp. finely grated lemon zest
2 tsp. finely grated lime zest
1 to 2 cloves garlic, pressed or mashed to a paste
1/2 tsp. ground turmeric
For the Salad
1/4 cup plain rice vinegar
kosher salt
3-1/2 lb. medium waxy potatoes, such as Yukon Gold or red (or 3-1/4 lb. baby potatoes), scrubbed clean
1 cup thawed frozen or blanched fresh peas
1 cup halved, seeded, and thinly sliced cucumber
1 cup cherry or pear tomatoes, halved or quartered
3/4 cup grated Cheddar
4 large hard-boiled eggs, diced
3/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
3/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted

Make the Dressing

Whisk all the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl.

Make the Salad

Combine the rice vinegar and 2 tsp. salt in a large bowl. Let sit to dissolve the salt. Put the potatoes and 2 Tbs. salt in a 6-quart pot and add enough cold water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil over high heat and reduce the heat to maintain a simmer. Cook the potatoes until barely tender when poked with a fork or skewer, 20 to 25 minutes. If the potatoes aren't all the same size, remove them as they are cooked. (Baby potatoes will take 5 to 10 minutes.)

Gently drain the potatoes in a colander and set aside until just cool enough to handle. Using a paring knife, peel the potatoes by scraping off the skin. (Skip this step if using baby potatoes.) Cut the potatoes into 3/4-inch chunks. Add the potatoes to the bowl with the vinegar and gently stir with a spatula to coat. With your fingers, pull apart any pieces that are stuck together.

When the potatoes have completely cooled, gently fold the peas, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, Cheddar, hard-boiled eggs, parsley, cilantro, and almonds into the potatoes. Fold in enough dressing to generously coat the potatoes (you may not need all of the dressing). Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve at room temperature or cold.
