Roasted Potato, Corn and Green Bean Salad

Roasted Potato, Corn and Green Bean Salad

A great alternative to standard potato salad, this is perfect for a summer potluck. Mayo free so it holds up well in the heat and is a much healthier option beyond the standard. 

I made this just to re-do this post and without a party full of people to plow through it, it was slow-going with the kids (doesn’t work for Rich’s diet). That being said, they liked and it was nice to have “dinner veggies” on the ready for several nights. This is a bit involved but it took me one hour of total work from start to finish, which isn’t terrible. Hope you enjoy!
