Savoury Roasted Potato Salad Recipe

Our cookout theme week continues with one more tasty side dish! Although a little ashamed, I was or am a big fan of the mayo-based potato salad that my mom made when we were growing up. Cookouts just weren’t the same without it. It was creamy deliciousness with a bit of spice and kick. Perfect, right? But this Roasted Potato Salad recipe changed my mind.

My cookout menu has been all about making better dishes for you than our original favourites. However, I think I’ve actually found a recipe that is even better than my original favourite (but don’t worry mom, it will always have a special place in my heart).

Without talking about what is “wrong” with the old standard, let’s focus on what is right about what could be your new favourite cookout side dish. Instead of using white potatoes (no to white starches!) I used sweet and purple potatoes (both available at your local grocery store), and instead of boiling them, I roasted them! Roasting brings out all of the potatoes natural sugars and gives them a crunchy edge that stands up to the dressing instead of wallowing.

Then, instead of mayo, I made a creamy dressing using olive oil, dijon mustard, anchovies (don’t knock it until you try it) and capers. Top with fresh herbs, and you have a light side dish that is perfect for any cookout or picnic! Check out the very tasty Roasted Potato Salad you’ll love for sure!
