Roasted Potato red pepper and garlic salad

Deb Crane


A simple salad that is good warm,room temperature or chilled. Wanting something that could sit out on a buffet, I came up with this today. Roasting the garlic,potatoes and sweet red peppers adds a nice depth to this different salad. Easy to transport and no need to worry about spoilage while it sits out on the buffet. Healthy addition to any gathering!

snipped chives to taste


1/4 c

2 tsp
1/4 tsp

1/2 tsp

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Oil a rimmed baking sheet with some olive oil.
Remove the paper skin of the outside of the garlic bulb. Leave it whole, just get off as much of the paper skin from the outside. Cut the top off just a bit. (just some of the very top portion.
Place it in the middles of your prepared pan cut side up/root side down.
Place the cut potatoes around the garlic bulb in the middle.
Bake in preheated oven for about 30 minutes, until the potatoes are tender.
Remove potatoes from pan, but leave the garlic bulb on the pan.
Place the red peppers around the garlic bulb and bake for an additional 20 minutes, until the red peppers are slightly roasted and the garlic bublb is tender when pierced with a fork.
Add the peppers to the potaotes, and let cool for a while.
Allow garlic bulb to cool off until you can handle it. TO remove the roasted garlic, squeeze out each clove out of its "shell"
Put the garlic in a large bowl and smash it with a fork.
To the smashed garlic, add the dressing ingredients. Stir well to combine.
Add your reserved potatoes and peppers to the dressing. Add snipped chives.
Toss gently to combine.
This salad has a wonderful flavor! For as simple as it is, it has much depth. An easy change of pace from your regular potato salads and no need to refrigerate! I like it best at room temperature, but it could also be served warm, or chilled.
