Roasted New Potato Salad

When I think of summer, I think potato salad.  It’s the perfect addition to any BBQ and wonderful alongside my favorites: grilled chicken and baked beans.  Although I love potato salad, I cannot eat it.  Potatoes hurt my digestion and aggravate inflammation.  Moreover, potatoes are not allowed on the SCD, so a big no-no food.  But I do make this dish for my family and summer gatherings…and it’s always a hit.  The roasted potatoes create a wonderful flavor and a fabulous texture.  You could also make this dish with roasted parsnips (if potatoes aren’t your thing). If you do make with potatoes, I recommend new potatoes (my Gramie’s favorite).  I hope you enjoy my tasty alternative on a summer favorite.
-3 1/2 lbs red new potatoes, or any new potatoes (oil and garlic granules for roasting)
-1/2 cup diced red onion
-10 small dill pickles (4.5 oz), small chop
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-1/2 teaspoon garlic granuels
-1/2 teaspoon onion granules
-2 tablespoons oil

-1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

-2 tablespoons pickle juice
How To:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
1.  Wash, dry and chop potatoes.  Toss potatoes with 3 tablespoons of oil and 1 tablespoon garlic granuels.  Roast for 40 minutes (or until golden and slightly crispy).  When done, remove from baking dish and place in a bowl.  Allow to cool before adding other topping
2.  When potatoes are cool, toss with above ingredients.
3.  Garnish with paprika (smoked is quite tasty).
