Springtime Salad

If you’re looking for a traditional type potato salad, but with bright flavors, this is it! With plenty of fresh vegetables and delicious seasoning, you can’t go wrong. There is no boiling required (which I love) and several options to change the recipe from season to season. It’s creamy and spiked with a secret ingredient. You’ll never go back to that boring old potato salad after you try this!

 

Springtime Potato Salad

Serves 4-6

  • 1 bag (about 3lbs) Fingerling potatoes or red/yellow potatoes  (halved)
  • 4 tbsp EVOO
  • S & P for roasting and salad
  • 1/2 tsp Onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp Ground fennel
  • 1 tbsp Fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1/4 + 2 tbsp Miracle Whip
  • 2 tbsp Apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 stalk Celery (diced)
  • 1 Carrot (peeled and diced)
  • 3 Green onions (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup Kalamata olives (halved)

 

First, preheat the oven to 375 °. Place the halved potatoes in a bowl and add the EVOO, S & P, onion powder, and garlic powder. Toss until the potatoes are completely coated. Pour the potatoes onto a baking sheet lined with foil. Roast the potatoes in the oven for 30-35 minutes or until they are fully cooked. Remove from the oven and cool for 10 minutes.
