Barbecue Oven-Roasted Potato Salad

I’ve been testing out potato salad recipes lately trying to find one that I like.

My family potato salad, which I posted years ago, is increasingly challenging to make. Not because it’s a hard recipe, but because there’s an ingredient that is almost impossible to find in the grocery store: green onion dip mix.

If I’m lucky, I can get it online.

If not, I’m left potato salad-less.

I tested this oven-roasted potato salad recipe out over the Super Bowl weekend. It went well with my oven-baked brisket and was a stellar side dish.

This salad can be eaten hot or cold, but I recommend eating it warm. Refrigerated cooked potatoes, like fries or oven-roasted potatoes, aren’t really my jam.

All of the ingredients in this potato salad work well together. I love the addition of green onions. They add a bite to any potato salad, and I try to use them as much as possible in those recipes!
