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
-1/2 cup soy-free Vegenaise mayo or homemade vegan
-1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
-2 tablespoons pickle juice
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).

Thanks so much Caralyn. :-)Delete
This looks good Amber! How can you stand making it and not eating it?! That is true love for the fam!!ReplyDelete
Well, in all honesty, it's not worth the pain! I have come to terms with this over the past 9 years. I just can't eat certain foods, so I just don't - but I surround myself with lots of great food I can eat. And Scott's my best taste tester! :-)
I love potato salad but it doesn't like me :( so like you, I make it for others and this is a fantastic recipe! I love the garlic, onion and pickles mixed in, I've never tried that! Yum!ReplyDelete
Ahh dear, I could never make this recipe and not be able to eat it! That would be torture for me-you are such a good sport! I like your idea of making it with parsnips though. I love potato salad and this healthy twist is great.ReplyDelete
Well I hope this recipe turned out for you. I saw on FB you were making it. It's a favorite with the kids!
