This Roasted Potato Salad is hands down one of my very favorite ways to make potatoes and many readers have had great success with it as well. The crispy roasted potatoes are topped with a whole grain dijon dressing and fresh goat cheese while still hot out of the oven.

These potatoes are so yummy, you may want them as an appetizer rather than a side dish, so they don't outshine your main course.

This Roasted Potato Salad with Dijon and Goat Cheese Dressing is made with my daughter's favorite oven fried potatoes. I roasted the potatoes with the simple method I always use to make them for her, and only poured the vinaigrette dressing on half the potatoes, as she closely watched me to ensure they were not all being "defiled" I then had a 5 minute potato cooling window to snap a few pictures.

Of course, I could have served the dressing on the side, but I wanted to let the goat cheese melt over the hot potatoes and let a bit of the tartness of the vinegar burn off, which wouldn't happen unless I dowsed the spuds, straight out of the oven.

This goat cheese Dijon vinaigrette would also be delicious on boiled or steamed potatoes (hot or cold), for a broccoli salad or over a simple green salad as well.

Here is what the salad looks like right after topping with the Dijon & Goat Cheese Dressing, and how it would remain served over cooler potatoes. This may be preferable if you won't be serving the dish warm.

... and here is a bite of the melty goat cheesy goodness. [Insert a Barry White style "Oh, yeah... " ]

    Just wondering how many servings this makes? Would like to make it for a potluck but need to know how many batches to make:)

    • Robin Gagnon says

      As a side dish, 6-8 servings... of course my daughter could polish off the 2 lbs of roasted potatoes


  9. Toni says

    This recipe looks and sounds so good. Having a family of potato lovers I will definitely be trying this.


  10. Angela says

    Oh my gosh, that looks incredible.


    • Deborah says

      Can you sub the goats cheese?


      • Robin Gagnon says

        The texture would be fine, but keep in mind most other crumbly cheeses will be pungent or salty.


  11. JN says

    I made this tonight for dinner and loved it! I really love tangy flavors and this was great.


  12. Patricia says

    My daughter and I just made some fresh goat cheese and we are trying this dish with dinner tonight. Thanks for sharing!

    This warm potato salad was amazing!


  15. Monique says

    So easy and DELICIOUS! Thanks for this recipe, loved it.


  16. Pat Matovina says

    Looks awesome! The ingredients list calls for Dijon mustard but in the pictures it looks like grainy mustard is used, which is it?


    • Robin Gagnon says

      I use a whole grain mustard.


  17. jessica Hall says

    Hi looking forward to making this. Do you have a substitute for the veg bouillon? Thanks


    • Robin Gagnon says

      It is just for seasoning. Some chicken base would work. This is an older recipe, these days I would grab some Mrs. Dash and sprinkle that on.


  18. Angela says

    Thank you so much for this recipe! I've made it twice now and it is perfect! I used Mrs. Dash instead of chicken bouillon since I didn't have any and it was great. Very elevated and gourmet, but easy to make. My husband said it's the best potato salad he's ever had and I agree!


  19. Wendy says

    Thank you for this excellent, tasty recipe! I didn’t have any bouillon powder, but I think the dressing is so tasty that simple salt and pepper on the potatoes is fine. Yum!


  20. Nikki says

    My family LOVES my potato salad, and they all said this was better. Amazing!


  21. Karen says

    I have made this several times since discovering it. Delicious.
