Not your typical soggy potato salad. Gotta say, I’ve never been a real big potato salad fan. But in truth, I’m not a boiled potato fan either..maybe that’s why I don’t typically like the American-style potato salad that makes an appearance at the barbecue.
Roasting is a different story. Almost any veggie roasted tastes better in my book. So I decided to reinvent the potato salad by roasting it.
Potatoes are good for you if they are prepared the right way. They are a great source of fiber, potassium, and vitamin C. Yes, they are high in carbohydrates, but the good kind cause they contain resistant starch which may have additional health benefits.
