As much as I love a good potato salad, sometimes you gotta mix it up. Something tasy, something fresh, something easy. And there’s nothing easier than a one pan meal right?? So here come’s Southwest Roasted Potato Salad!
Easiest salad ever. No boiling, no mashing, nada. OH and healthy. Olive oil instead of mayo really helps with calorie count (if you’re counting 🙂 ). Toss the veggies and olive oil together on a roasting pan, spread into a single layer and leave an empty space to put the corn on the cob. Aaaand roast. 30 minutes, remove the corn, another 30 minutes, top with fresh herbs and done. Like I said, Southwest Roasted Potato Salad = easiest salad ever.
Notice how all of that was done on one pan? Excellentmetoo. Massive one pan fan here! I’m certainly not going to say no to less clean up.
Oh and ps. Have Southwest Roasted Potato Salad leftovers? Perfect. Warm them up the next morning with some eggs, cheese, salsa and a tortilla to make a delicious breakfast burrito. Maybe throw some avocado in there too because yuuuummm 🌯👌.
- 2 lbs baby red potatoes, halved
- 1 corn on the cob, husk on
- 1 red bell pepper, diced
- 1 orange bell pepper, diced
- 1 green bell pepper, diced
- ½ teaspoon cumin
- ¼ teaspoon ancho chili pepper
- 1 tablespoon coarse salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1 tablespoon fresh dill, minced + extra roughly chopped to garnish
- Green onion, thinly sliced to garnish
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- Preheat oven to 400˚F.
- Toss potatoes, bell peppers, cumin, ancho chili pepper, salt, pepper, minced dill, and olive oil until coated on a roasting pan. Spread the vegetables out into a single layer, leaving an empty space for the corn on the cob. Place the corn on the cob, husk still on, in the empty space.
- Put the pan on a middle rack in the oven and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the corn on the cob and set aside. Put the pan back in the oven and cook for another 30 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
- While vegetables continue to cook, remove the husk from the corn and slice off the kernels.
- When the potatoes are tender enough to be pierced with a fork, remove the pan from the oven. Stir in the corn kernels and add the remaining fresh dill and green onion to garnish.
