Roasted Potato, Spinach, and Parmesan Salad Recipe

I am a huge salad lover! Sweet salads, savory salads, I love them all. A few weeks ago, my friend Shannon, my daughter and I, had a picnic dinner at the park. This is the salad she brought with that day. When I tried it, it instantly became a favorite! The flavors are bold and fresh, and the potatoes and spinach go so well together. This salad is great for summer picnics and barbeques, but also for a side dish with a winter meal. Enjoy this salad, it's a great one!!

Roasted Potato, Spinach and Parmesan Salad (print recipe)

What you need:
2 pounds potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup regular or light mayo
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons water
1 clove garlic, minced
6 cups spinach
1/2 cup shaved parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. On a large baking sheet combine potatoes, olive oil, and salt until evenly coated. Roast for 40 minutes, stirring once until potatoes are golden and tender. Cool. 

In a large salad bowl, whisk mayo, lemon zest, lemon juice, water and garlic until blended. Add potatoes, spinach and parmesan, toss until evenly coated. Sprinkle with pepper and serve!
