Spanish Roasted Potato Salad

Salads or soups makes a super filling evening dinner and i love salads very much. Obviously twice a week, i never fail to make salads. One of my recent favourite aka our family favourite is this Spanish Roasted Potato Salad. Anything with potatoes goes directly to your favourite food list, today's recipe goes for oven roasting potatoes. This salad goes for baby potatoes and trust me everyone at home went crazy once they saw this incredible salad. I picked this irresistible Spanish roasted potato salad from Food 52 contest. This salad ressembles almost like the famous Spanish patatas bravas. Usually Patatas bravas are often served as a tapa in bars. It typically consists of white potatoes that have been cut into irregular shapes of about 2 centimeters, then fried in oil and served warm with a sauce such as a spicy tomato sauce or an aioli. This dish is commonly served in restaurants and bars throughout Spain

This oven roasted potato salad is definitely a healthy version of Patatas Bravas, baby potatoes cut as two pieces or quarters coated with a simple spice mix goes for oven roasting. Seriously instead of frying this roasted potatoes works awesome. Not to forget, this salad goes for a mayonnaise, lemon juice, chopped garlic and dijon mustard dressing to serve with this oven roasted potatoes.When served at room temperature or chilled, trust me this salad simply rocks. Am running my second week of blogging with Food 52 Weekly contest as theme, We, marathoners are supposed to check this Site
