Warm Basil Potatoes

This potato salad style dish is made with roasted potatoes  and can be served hot or room temp. If you  want to serve the dish cold I would recommend boiling the potatoes instead of roasting. A few weeks ago I bought a huge bunch of fresh local basil and this was a great way to enjoy a heaping handful of one of my favorite herbs. This recipe utilizes my recipe for Lebanese Garlic Sauce. Basically add a ton of chopped basil to a few tbs of the Labanese garlic sauce then smother all over warm roasted potatoes and presto perfect side dish for dinner. If you are going to serve this as a potato salad add super finely sliced celery, radishes and some green onion. Simple is always delicious!


  1. Love basil, love potatoes so this is a winner in by book.

  2. I love the twist on potato salad. Looks tasty!

  3. Basil works great with potatoes - this looks like a great sidedish!


Thanks for your two cents. I love change!
