Break out of the boring old potato salad rut with this Easy Roasted Potato Salad. Roasted Yukon gold potatoes are tossed with a light dressing of stone ground mustard, mayo, a touch of sweet pickle relish, and minced shallot.
Since this Easy Roasted Potato Salad calls for roasting the potatoes instead of boiling them, the extra flavor from the caramelization is what gives this potato salad its unique, and standalone taste. So ditch the pot of water and grab a baking sheet instead. NOW we’re talking!
After tossing the sliced potatoes with oil, lay them, cut side down, on the baking sheet. This step is necessary for optimal potato caramelization, and it’s the main thing that makes this Easy Roasted Potato Salad so flavorful and delicious.
Check out how easy this Easy Roasted Potato Salad is to make:

- Serving bowl
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Place the sliced potatoes in a large bowl along with the oil, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat.
Place the potato slices, cut side down, in a single layer on a baking sheet.
Roast in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender and deeply caramelized.
Meanwhile, whisk the mayonnaise, mustard, relish, and shallots until blended.
Remove the potatoes from the oven. Use a spatula a remove the potatoes from the baking sheet, and place them in the large bowl.
While the potatoes are warm, toss them with the mustard dressing. *Note - if you like a very creamy potato salad, add all of the dressing. If not, use less.
Season with additional salt and pepper (if needed), garnish with fresh parsley, and serve immediately. Or, chill at least 1 hour, and serve cold.
Capers would be a delicious ingredient in this salad as a replacement for the sweet pickle relish if you prefer a vinegary bite.
This salad is delicious served warm, or chilled.
The following Dr. Suess wine glass doesn’t really have anything to do with the Easy Roasted Potato Salad recipe, but I thought the colors coordinated well. LOL. This is a glass that I painted a few years back after it was requested by a customer as a college graduation gift. Love that!
