Springtime means it’s time for picnics and barbecues which are perfect places to serve a great potato salad. For this potato salad you use red potatoes which have a wonderful flavor and you roast them instead of boil them, which brings out the flavor even more.
I think of this as more of a gourmet potato salad. It has some wonderful flavors and doesn’t have too much mayonnaise. The white wine vinegar gives it just a little kick and the parsley makes it so pretty. Trust me you will want to pin the recipe so you will have it the next time you are asked to bring the potato salad!

I like to cut my potatoes very small for cute, bite size pieces.
