  1. To make the confit potatoes, heat the butter and oil together in a sauce pan over medium heat. If the potatoes are different sized cut the larger ones in half to promote even cooking.  Add the potatoes to the butter-oil mixture.  The potatoes should be submerged.  Reduce the heat to low and cook until the potatoes are just tender (about 25-35 minutes) Allow the potatoes to cool in the butter-oil mixture.
  2. To make the vinaigrette, whisk the lemon juice, olive oil, mustard, salt and chives together. Place into a squeeze bottle and reserve for plating.
  3. Using a slotted spoon remove the potatoes from the butter-oil, gently warm the potatoes in a small sauté pan (they should be just above room temp. Remove from the heat and drizzle with the vinaigrette.  Top with Chive blossoms if desired.
