Roasted Potato Salad

Categories FOOD

Sometimes potato salad can just lack texture. It becomes something more along the line of glorified mashed potatoes. Not to mention that potato salad can sometimes be monochromatic. A simple remedy to these little problems is an easy fix. Rather than boiling the hell out of your potatoes, roast them instead. This adds a delightfully crispy, crunch and loads of flavor. Also, skip the boring regular tater; and opt for colorful varieties like Peruvian Purple or Michigan Purple for a feast for the eyes and health. Greek yogurt or sour cream replaces the mayo and crispy bacon makes itself right at home in the mix.
