Whatever your 4th of July celebration or summer cookouts looks like you gotta have potato salad! Since it’s an unusual year, make an unusual potato salad. Herb Roasted Potato Salad.
A single sheet pan is all it takes to make a delicious non-mayo potato salad!
We love roasted vegetables, no matter what kind. Roasting any vegetable brings out all the goodness. The oven caramelizes the natural sugars in veggies, that brings about a fantastic depth of flavor. Plus, it’s super easy.
Which makes this potato salad super easy. My best trick to get the small amount of oil you use when roasting veggies all over is to place everything in a Ziploc bag. Then smush it all around until everything is covered with the oil and any seasonings you add. Best of all, no dishes, just through the bag away.
I can hear you all now…..it’s hot out, and I don’t want to turn on the oven (in a whinny voice)! Ok, I’m pretty sure you all have air-conditioning. But in the event you do not, you could boil the potatoes and still have a great potato salad.
It’s really the dressing that makes this potato salad shine. It’s not mayo laden. Don’t get me wrong, a good old fashioned mayo-based potato salad is delicious! Our Baby Red Potato Salad is my favorite potato salad recipe bar-none! But every once in a while, you want something different. Herb Roasted Potato Salad is it!
I am lucky enough to have an herb garden. If you are not so fortunate, you can find a variety of fresh herbs at your local grocery or at Farmer’s Markets. I just loaded up on almost every herb I have in my garden for this potato salad.
Parsley, of course! Rosemary, chives, tarragon, thyme, and dill….a kitchen sink of herbage!! They came together with a vinaigrette of olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, shallot, and two types of mustard. Mixing grainy and dijon enhances the flavor of both. Plus, I like how the grainy mustard looks in dishes, those little mustard seeds give a rustic look.
Oh, did I forget to mention the bacon? Yeah, there’s bacon!
Bacon seriously can make anything taste better, and this potato salad is no exception! I cooked it until just short of crisp and added it to the roasting potatoes…another layer of flavor.
Usually, I would use a large bowl to mix the potato salad, but I thought, why not just toss everything right on the baking sheet, fewer dishes! As Tim would say, it was “brilliant”! Of course, he does the dishes so…….
We ate some of this salad warm…ya gotta taste a recipe??? Then we had the remainder for dinner at room temperature. It was delicious both ways.
Herb Roasted Potato Salad is the perfect side for any cookout!
