Roasted Gluten-Free Potato Salad

As we wrap up our summer this Labor Day Weekend, here’s a delicious side dish to take along on one of your outings this weekend.

 

Attending cookouts with friends can create worry about the foods that will be offered due to our food allergies.  By bringing a delicious dish to share, you know that there will be a safe and delicious food available for you to enjoy.

 

This salad is so delicious, so easy,

and just right for your summer outings

 

Typically, a potato salad is made with boiling potatoes, which can boil away the nutrition.  Here, we roast the potatoes to seal in the juicy goodness, giving them another layer of flavor.

I like to use a mix of potatoes, always adding sweet potatoes to kick up the health as they contain many vitamins and minerals. They are a great form of vitamin A (beta-carotene), vitamin C and potassium. They also contain Vitamins B5 & B6,  Vitamin E and manganese.  Sweet potatoes are carbs, but they do offer some fiber as well as antioxidants.  

 

Although they are sweet, thus containing sugar, they do have a low glycemic index – so no big blood sugar spikes, just a steady amount of energy. Do not skip out on this potato! It is definitely my favorite!

 

Choose whatever potatoes float your boat – sweet, red, purple or white.  Some work better depending on the dish you are making.  

 

For instance, starchy potatoes, like the basic Idaho Russet, will typically fall apart in a potato salad.  Better to choose Red Bliss, New Potatoes, or even fingerling potatoes, which will hold together better.

 

To make the potato salad:

Start by choosing about 1-2 potatoes per person, depending on the size of the potato. I always make more to have left-overs, so factor that in as well if needed.

*Roast at 375 – 400° for 15 minutes.  Give the potatoes a little toss.

Rotate the pan in the oven and roast for another 10-15 minutes,

until lightly browned and soft enough for a fork to pull through.

 

*Let cool on the pan.

 

*Once cooled, place in a bowl and put in the refrigerator

for about an hour before mixing together.

 

Earth Balance Olive Oil Mayo is a good option for gluten-free and dairy-free recipes.  Overall, choose a good, healthy mayo, not loaded with fabricated oils and additives.  Thrive Market carries an avocado mayo that would be great to use in this recipe as well.

In a separate bowl, add two spoonfuls of your mayo (more or less depending on how many potatoes you actually diced up).  You want to have enough to cover, but not loaded up and smothered.  Then add two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon of Annie’s Honey Mustard (or your favorite mustard) and about 3 teaspoons of dried parsley, or use fresh parsley and chop up a small bunch.  (Again, you want to estimate if you are doubling the recipe.)

 

Mix all together, then spoon over the cooled potatoes.  Toss until all potatoes are coated. Return to the fridge and let all the flavors combine.

When available at the Farmer’s Market, I also toss in a handful of chopped green onion, as it adds another nice layer of flavor.

This tastes even better the next day, as the flavors all come together.

 

A great addition to any cookout or

BBQ you are going to attend!

 

Bringing a dish yourself, you are sure to

have something to eat that is a safe

bet for you to enjoy!

 

Less stress for you.

More fun for all!
