I am a firm believer that any vegetable tastes best when it’s roasted. Firm Believer. So don’t fight me on this one. Although you will have to use your oven to bring out the flavours of these veggies, you won’t be sorry. If you start sweating from the oven heat taking this summer heat up a notch, just lightly dab at that upper lip sweat with a kitchen towel and power on cause IT’S GOING TO BE WORTH IT. This Vegan Potato Salad is worth it.
Maybe when I mentioned the upper lip sweat, that put you off? Hope not, cause this Potato Broccoli Salad will make your taste buds so happy, you’ll totally forget about the sweat that went into making this. Ok, I’ll stop talking about sweat now.
But seriously, this creamy, out of this world, slightly sweet roasted vegetable salad will knock your socks off. (I actually really hope you aren’t wearing socks, it’s summer…) I think any dish that has candied pecans in it, is bound to be satisfying. I’m pretty in love with candied pecans but the sweetness isn’t overloading in this dish. I actually think they balance the potatoes and broccoli out really lovely. You don’t want to leave them out of the salad. You need them in it.
here are some reasons why I love this Roasted Vegan Potato Salad, so listen up!
- Like I mentioned earlier I’m a big fan of roasted veg, and this potato salad is next level with these lightly crispy potatoes. Also, the roasted broccoli is pure heaven. Adam was nibbling on some of the broccoli before I threw it all together and he actually said he liked the broccoli. (He had told me earlier how he just didn’t like broccoli. But roasted broccoli is apparently a different story). See, roasted vegetables = next level.
- This salad is great as leftovers! I was skeptical, thinking everything would go soggy and soft. But it held up, just keep it in an airtight container in the fridge. It was really good all chilled and the flavours had some fridge time to meld together.
- I used simple and straightforward ingredients. Sometimes recipes can be intense with weird ingredients (I know I can be guilty of that) but this recipe is easy peasy and such a crowd pleaser.
There you have it friends, the perfect summer potato salad to entertain with, or to just munch on midweek. I could go on and on, but let’s be honest, you’d rather just get to the recipe. Deliciousness is just a few scrolls away.
