Roasted Potato Salad


Lightened Roasted Red Potato Salad | Young, Broke and Hungry

Potato Salad is one of those dishes I could never get behind. It always had too much mayonnaise for my liking.  At the supermarket, it gets sold in a plastic container and the potatoes are unrecognizable in the white goo. I shudder just thinking about it.  However, with Fourth of July coming up, potato salad is practically a staple along side ribs and burgers.  So that’s why I developed recipe that will not make you gag in disgust but squeal in joy.

Roasting the potatoes at 425 degrees for 15 minutes brings out their sweetness and makes them taste like buttah.  Mashing them until large chunks remain, let’s the tangy dressing coat every last bite.  Without my consent, my mom threw in a jar of black olives, which was a mistake. They overwhelm the other ingredients.  If you can, ignore the black specks in my pictures, I was too tired to make another batch of Roasted Potato Salad.  That blunder aside, this salad will become a tradition in your household.  It’s creamy but light with a nice crunch from the celery and red onion. Enjoy!

    Olives ignored. For some reason, my mom throws black olives into everything, too. Maybe moms just crave them ;-) This salad sounds good. I love the dill and using greek yogurt instead of mayo. Whoever though a bowl full of mayo on a hot day was a good idea apparently liked feeling greasy and heavy.

    This makes me want to pack a picnic basket! I love potato salad so much more with yogurt in lieu of mayo—not just for health points, but because I’m a sucker for the sour tang it adds.

    AJHDGSJHGFSDFH I LOVE potato salad. Hate how it’s always super mayo-y. I mean, I like mayo, but come on. Sometimes potato salads are like a mayo milkshake with potato chunks. Not cool, bro. This looks healthy and refreshing–love that you use Greek yogurt! Yay for no more potato salad milkshakes!!

    I’m so not into the mayo-infused versions of potato salad either! They make me gag. I’d much rather have this version!!

    I think you made this potato salad recipe for me! I hate the regular stuff and don’t like too much mayonnaise-y goop. My husband, however, LOVES potato salad, so I think he’ll be one happy puppy when I make this version. :)
