Roasted Potato Salad with Red Wine Caper Vinaigrette

This potato salad is light and refreshing – so unlike the mayonnaise or sour cream versions – perfect for warm summer evenings.

I like to use a variety of little potatoes, toss with olive oil, salt and pepper.

Roast on a baking sheet – don’t crowd them – they roast much better with a little space.

When roasted until just tender combine with:

Sliced fresh radishes
red onions (I like it best with pickled onions – check our my recipe for them)
minced parsley
1/2 cup bacon (thinly sliced and cooked until crisp)

A perfect fresh potato salad, crunchy and tangy - love it.

Vinaigrette:

Blend all ingredients together until smooth and creamy – toss over vegetables when potatoes are still warm. Serve at room temperature.
