Roasted Red Potato Salad with Rosemary

As a side dish for the Oven Roasted Spice-Rubbed Chicken we served this yummy Roasted Red Potato Salad. With a combination of cider vinegar, a touch of Dijon mustard and fresh rosemary, the salad was the perfect addition to the zesty chicken.

This is a also great salad to take to a pitch-in or potluck dinner.  Since it contains no mayonnaise, it can easily be set out for a picnic without the need for refrigeration.  The salad can also be served slightly warm or can be chilled and served cold. We tried the salad both warm and cold and I think I preferred the warm version a bit more, while the kids preferred it cold. The salad had a nice vinegar taste that reminded me of a classic German Potato Salad. Either way the flavors were crisp, bold and delicious.

1 1/2 lbs  Red Potatoes, scrubbed and cut into bite sized cubes
1 TB  Fresh Rosemary, chopped
2 TB  Olive Oil
1 1/2 TB  Apple cider Vinegar
4 tsp  Dijon or Spicy Brown Mustard
2 - 3 TB  Chopped Green Olives
1 TB  Capers, rinsed and drained (optional)

Preheat oven to 400.

In a large bowl, toss the cubed potatoes with the olive oil and rosemary, mixing well to evenly coat.

Line a baking sheet with non-stick foil and spread the potatoes onto the baking sheet in a single layer.

Bake the potatoes for 20 - 30 minutes, stirring once, until potatoes are just beginning to brown on the edges and are almost fork-tender.  Do not overcook or the potatoes will crumble.

Allow the potatoes to cool slightly, about 15 minutes.  Mix the remaining ingredients in a large serving bowl, stirring to combine, then add the cooled potatoes and stir to coat the potatoes with the vinegar dressing.  The salad can be served immediately for a slightly warm salad or can be chilled and served cold.  Enjoy!!
