Oven-Roasted Caesar Potato Salad

This is the perfect potato salad when you’re bored with the traditional mayonnaise-based version. Omit the prosciutto if you want to keep it meatless. If you can’t find small potatoes, use larger ones and cut them into quarters before baking.

1. Preheat the oven to 425ºF. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking oil.

2. Place the potatoes, onion wedges and garlic on the prepared baking sheet. Spray the potatoes and onion with cooking oil. Roast for approximately 25 minutes. Turn the onion and potatoes over and roast for another 5 minutes, until soft. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

3. When the vegetables are cool, cut the potatoes into quarters and dice the onions. Peel and chop the garlic. Place the roasted vegetables in a serving bowl.

4. Combine 2 Tbsp of the Parmesan cheese, mayonnaise, oil, water, lemon juice, anchovies and mustard in the bowl of a small food processor. Purée until smooth.

5. Toss the dressing with the salad. Garnish with the remaining 1 Tbsp cheese, prosciutto, green onion and fresh parsley.
