Roasted Potato Salad

This recipe is always a crowd favorite, probably because it’s a zesty facelift to the familiar potato salad found at park tables everywhere. Roasting the potatoes not only gives it a hearty bite, but it avoids over cooking and serving crumbly spuds. The sliced onions give the salad a zesty crunch and works magic with the salami, should you choose to go the carnivorous route. But let’s be honest, what really livens up this classic dish is our dressing made with light Mexican cream and our Ancho Chile & Tamarind Sauce to give it that smoky tang that makes this recipe dynamite!
