Roasted Potato Salad with Tomatoes, Peppers and Roasted Corn

How fun is this salad?  All the goodness of fresh farm produce all mixed into one!  Best of all it takes no time at all because while you’re roasting the corn and potatoes, you can prepare your other veggies and viola – a gorgeous salad that your kids will gobble up!

All of the produce used in this dish came from Barrie Hill Farms.  They even had huge basil plants that I pounced on and now I’m in the process of concocting a fun new pesto recipe.

I saw this recipe on Fine Cooking and knew immediately it was the right one for me and I didn’t change a thing.  The simple dressing of olive oil and red wine vinegar enhances the flavours and you know I love a potato salad without that dreaded mayo!

I was doing the happy dance through the market as I picked up these beautiful onions….

and great looking potatoes for miles.  Did you know that Morris’ father started the farm when he was 53 years old by planting 5 acres of potatoes?  That truly requires a passion for farming!  Now they have hundreds of acres and Morris has made plans for apple orchards next year!

Did you notice that the nights are starting to get cooler already?  I see that some bloggers are talking about pumpkins and apples and I’m going to lodge a formal protest – I am NOT ready for Fall!  It feels like summer just started!  I say we start up a movement and refuse to have winter this year.  Who’s with me?!

In the meantime, I hope you’ll try this recipe.  I believe it will become a family favorite.  Cheers!

Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 6
  • 2 lb. small potatoes or small Yukon Gold potatoes, washed and cut into 3/4-inch chunks
  • 3 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 ear fresh corn, in the husk
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups red, yellow, or orange cherry tomatoes (or a combination), halved
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1/2 small red onion, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1/2 yellow bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 2 small cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 3 Tbs. red-wine vinegar
  1. Cook potatoes and corn at the same time. Preheat oven to 450 F.
  2. Put cut potatoes in large bowl and drizzle with olive oil, add salt and pepper, tossing well to ensure they are well coated.
  3. Spread out evenly on baking tray in single layer and bake for 20 – 30 minutes until golden brown.
  4. Remove the husk and put the corn on a small baking sheet. Drizzle 1 tsp. of the oil onto the corn and rub it over all the kernels. Sprinkle with kosher salt and pepper. Roast, turning the cob occasionally, until the corn kernels are light brown in a few spots, about 20 minutes. Let the corn cool. Cut the kernels from the cob.
  5. Add the corn, tomatoes, red, green, and yellow peppers, onion, basil, and garlic to the potatoes. Toss gently. Whisk the remaining 1/4 cup oil and the vinegar together and add to the salad. Toss again. Season with kosher salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately

      So glad you like it, Debbie. If you find the flavour of basil a little overwhelming at times (or if hubby does, lol) you can substitute parsley. I really enjoyed this dish so can’t wait to hear what you think!

      You and I need to move to Hawaii for the winter, Debbie!

    I will TOTALLY do this with butternut squash!! I am not a potato fan. Or I could do it with cauliflower since it’s a little milder!
