This roasted potato salad recipe is different than the classic potato salad you're used to. This version is fresh with the addition of citrus, and is so flavorful!

 This fresh citrus and roasted potato salad is the perfect spin to a classic potato salad that you need in your life. When we usually think of a comforting potato salad, we think of mayonnaise, creaminess, and definitely not citrus. But trust me on this one. This healthier spin on the classic salad you love is so flavorful, fresh, and perfect for a summer BBQ or for lunch prep all season long.

How do you make vegan potato salad?

This recipe is really simple to make. Before you start anything, preheat that oven to 400F, then let’s get into the steps on perfecting this roasted potato salad:

  1. Into a large mixing bowl, combine the potatoes, olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, umami powder, fresh thyme and the juice of half a lemon. Toss till well combined and transfer to a large baking sheet
  2. Bake for 50 minutes, checking on them occasionally to avoid burning and to flip
  3. While the potatoes cook, quickly pickle some red onion by adding the juice of half a lemon to a small bowl and the slide red onion.  Top with some fresh thyme for a flavorful infusion
  4. When the potatoes are done, pull them out of the oven and add them to a beautiful serving dish.  Top with fresh citrus, pickled onions, avocado, honey or maple syrup then the juice from the marinated onions and fresh thyme
  5. Enjoy! This may blow your mind 😉

What is umami powder?

What is this strange word on the ingredient list? Let me tell you all about it. Umami powder is a seasoning that is a blend of mushrooms, aromatic vegetables, and herbs. It’s designed to enhance the savoury flavor of your dishes. I love adding it into recipes like this potato salad recipe!
