I just love making this roasted potato salad recipe for Memorial Day, 4th of July and picnic potlucks. It’s a wonderful go-to dish you can whip up in no time at all. It’s affordable, simple, filling and delicious to serve as a side dish. The sauce is what really makes this dish pop, and in this dish, we use a non-dairy (we used soy) yogurt dressing adds creaminess with fewer added calories than mayonnaise.
Adding some condiments and spices like mustard, dill, apple cider vinegar and pickles add that tang, herbiness, and crunch we all love in a potato salad. Serve this with some Tempeh Ribs and coleslaw (add links here) and you have got yourself a summer meal everyone will rave about.
If you remember to roast the potatoes the night before, you’ll have these beauties ready to go, and you can add the mix-ins and whip this up in no time.
Many people fear potatoes, as they are known to have high starch/carbohydrate content, but they are indeed a low-calorie food, offering 2 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber, and less than 100 calories per medium potato. Did you know that there is a trick to lowering the starch/carb level in potatoes by shocking them in ice cold water as soon as they are done boiling?
This stops the carb creation process, keeping your meal low carb and just as filling. Potatoes provide that element of earthiness and offer some wonderful essential vitamins and nutrients like potassium, which fuels our muscles. Keep the skin on for 30% more nutrient levels (potassium, iron, calcium, vitamin C & B6). They also contain fiber which is supportive for a healthy running digestive system.
