Roasted Red Bliss Potato Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette

Are you looking for a new way to jazz up your roasted red potato recipe? If you want something a little different, try this recipe. The balsamic vinegar adds a nice kick without being overwhelming. This delicious side salad is perfect for any season; a summer picnic or as a side for that hearty winter meal. It can be served warm or at room temperature, making it even more versatile!
I love how the potatoes absorb the delicious balsamic flavor and how the parsley adds a nice hint of freshness at the end.
1 lb red bliss potatoes, cubed
2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons Dijon Mustard (optional)
1 ½ tablespoons olive oil
1 garlic clove, very finely chopped  ( or ½ teaspoon minced garlic or teaspoon garlic powder)
salt and pepper
2 stalks green onion (scallion), chopped
1 cup chopped celery
½ cup marinated roasted red peppers, thinly sliced and cut into small pieces 
Fresh parsley, chopped
Preheat Oven to 400 degrees F
To make the vinaigrette: In a small; bowl, combine balsamic vinegar, olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper and Dijon mustard if you want it to have an extra kick. Dijon will give the salad a much stronger, a bit bitter and more vinegar-y taste.
Pour half of the dressing in a bowl with the cubed potatoes and toss to coat. Let sit for a few minutes to allow the vinaigrette to soak into the potatoes.
Transfer potatoes to a baking dish coated with nonstick cooking. Cook for about 35-40 minutes; until they soften and slightly brown.
When finished remove from oven and let cool slightly. Add in celery, red peppers, scallion and the rest of the vinaigrette. Toss to coat. Top with parsley and serve warm or at room temperature.

I've been on a gluten free diet since January 2009. It's been an adventure, and a challenge at times. I love to go to new restaurants and try new foods, and being gluten free can make eating out difficult at times. But I will not let my dietary restrictions get in my way of finding new restaurants and products. These are my stories of being a young women in a big city, eating out and trying new foods, all while NOT eating gluten. Like I said, it's an adventure and you are welcome to come along... Please note that as I try to eat gluten free 100% of the time, my intolerance is not as severe as others so please use caution when dining at restaurants that are not certified gluten free.
