While raw garlic is pungent, roasted garlic is sweet and mild with a buttery texture. Roast extra garlic for our Roasted Garlic Pizza. Serve this warm twist on potato salad as a side dish with steak or roast chicken.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°.

Step 2

Combine 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, garlic, and potatoes in a roasting pan or jelly-roll pan; toss well to coat. Bake at 400° for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until tender, stirring after 35 minutes. Cool 10 minutes.

Step 3

Squeeze garlic cloves to extract pulp. Discard skins. Combine garlic pulp, remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons oil, remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt, remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper, chives, vinegar, and mustard in a large bowl; stir well with a whisk. Add potatoes to bowl; toss well to coat.

Delicious! A nice change from regular roasted potatoes. I served with pork chops and a side salad. There were no leftovers! 70 minutes is the perfect time to get nice crisp sides to the potatoes. Will be a staple in out house from now on

We loved this dish!! tried if for the first time last night while entertaining another family of 4. I roasted the garlic separately, just in case.It worked out perfectly. There wasn't a morsel left, everyone raved about it. This is definitely a keeper.

This was pretty good. The potatoes absorbed the dressing right away so it didn't come out like the picture, but the taste was good.

This is delicious! It is the second time I have made this dish and saved what leftovers I had for my breakfast this morning! This time I used a spicy brown mustard and tri-colored new potatoes. Yummy!

Everyone at our dinner party loved these. They were yummy, as long as you stirred the potatoes and garlic when recommended my garlic turned out fine. The mustard gave it a nice bite.

These potatoes are excellent. I think that roasting at 400 for 1 hour and 10 minutes over roasted the garlic. Next time I will roast the garlic separately as per my usual way. The dressing is easy and impressive for a different way to serve potatoes. This is a keeper!!

Did not like the strong vinegar and mustard taste.
