No Mayo Potato Salad

I wanted to create a potato salad that used roasted potatoes and not just bland boiled potatoes!

Of course, you could add other ingredients to make it more “salad-y”, so consider this recipe as a base that you can adapt to fit your tastes. Snap peas, sliced red radish would be fantastic additions.

A Spicy Dressing For This No Mayo Potato Salad

The sesame and fresh chile dressing is crazy powerful, it adds the shock of flavor that is missing in most potato salads. You can control the amount of chile to your liking.

Asian Potato Salad

As far as potato salads go, this one is a bit of a fusion dish. It has a bit of Japanese seasoning; some soy sauce, sesame oil and seasoned rice vinegar. Pretty much flavors you find in different types of Asian cuisine and it works so well on crispy roasted potatoes.

Top Tips For This No Mayo Potato Salad

  • The easiest way to grate ginger is to keep a knob of ginger wrapped in plastic in your freezer. When you need some grated ginger, pull it out of the freezer, scrape away the peel (if you want, it’s not really necessary) of the area you want to grate, and grate the ginger with a microplane grater.
  • For extra crunchy yet soft roasted potatoes, parcook the potato chunks in boiling water before roasting. Drain the partially cooked potatoes, then add them back to the pot, and give them a really good shake around.
  • Never try to keep roast potatoes hot in a low oven: it is better to take them out of the oven when just perfect and put them to one side. 
  • Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container.
