Roasted Potato Salad with Dijon and Goat Cheese Dressing

Roasted Potato Salad with Dijon & Goat Cheese DressingThis Roasted Potato Salad with Dijon and Goat Cheese Dressing was inspired by a somewhat similar recipe from this month’s issue of Cooking Light.  Their version is called a Roasted Potato Salad with Creamy Dijon Vinaigrette.  Now I didn’t have a couple of the ingredients that recipe called for & Little Foodie ADORES roasted potatoes, so I roasted the potatoes with the simple method I always use to make them for her, and only poured dressing on half the potatoes, as she closely watched me to ensure they were not all being “defiled”…lol.  I then had a 5 minute potato cooling window to snap a few pictures.

Roasted Potatoes & Dijon Goat Cheese DressingOf course, I could have served the dressing on the side, but I wanted to let the goat cheese melt over the hot potatoes and let a bit of the tartness of the vinegar burn off, which wouldn’t happen unless I dowsed the spuds, straight out of the oven.

    This looks and sounds amazing. Several rows of potatoes are ready to be dug up in the garden, and the chives are ready to be cut, and the Amish family down the road has some fresh goat cheese. I’m going to try this tomorrow night! Thanks for sharing!

    Love that picture. I’m not a fan of goat cheese so I would definitely have to sub it out with another cheese. have any suggestions?

      I’ve made it with blue cheese, and liked it. You could even take a chunk of nice sharp cheddar & dice it small.
