Lemony Roasted Potato Salad

With the potato harvest just around the corner, we thought it was only appropriate that we celebrate with a delicious, seasonally fresh potato salad. 

Here’s what you’ll need:

* 2 pounds potatoes, roughly diced
* 2 celery stalks, finely minced
* 4 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil, divided
* 3 Tbs. Greek plain yogurt
* 2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
* 1 Tbs. freshly minced mint
* Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 400F/200C/6 Gas Mark. Toss the diced potatoes with 2 tbs olive oil and a good pinch of salt and pepper on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast for 30-35 minutes, flipping halfway through.

Remove from oven and let cool about 15 minutes in a large bowl. Then add the minced celery.

In the meantime, whisk together the remaining 2 tbs olive oil, yogurt, lemon juice and a good pinch of salt and pepper. Taste the dressing to see if you want more punch of lemon, or if you want it thicker or thinner. Adjust to get it to your liking.

Pour dressing over the roasted potatoes and toss to coat.

Garnish with minced mint and serve!
