Lemon-Basil Potato Salad

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by breezermom

This recipe makes a nice change from regular potato salad. The potatoes are roasted, tossed with a nice vinaigrette, then served over a bed of spinach. No mayo, so its picnic friendly.

Although I did make several slight changes, I don't think they detracted from the fact that you have a recipe here that makes for a very satisfying potato salad! I used lemon pepper instead of the usual S&P, & in place of the 10 slices of bacon, I used 1/4 cup of Hormel's Real Bacon Pieces! Thanks for a very nice keeper recipe!

  1. Arrange potato wedges in an even layer on a lightly greased broiler pan; coat wedges with vegetable cooking oil spray. Bake at 475 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until tender and golden.
  2. While potatoes are roasting, cook the bacon. Drain, crumble and set aside.
  3. Whisk together lemon juice and next 5 ingredients; whisk in oil in a slow, steady stream. Gently toss potatoes, onion, and 1/2 cup lemon mixture.
  4. Wash spinach thoroughly; pat dry with paper towels or spin dry. Arrange spinach evenly on a platter or in 6 individual bowls. Drizzle with remaining lemon juice mixture. Top with potato mixture and sprinkle with the bacon.
