I’ve shared a lot of potato recipes with you since I started my blog back in 2013. It is a versatile vegetable and a family favorite.

I cook potatoes at least twice a week and there are so many other potato recipes, I want to share with you.

If for some reason you don’t like the addition of cucumbers in this salad, I’ll totally understand.

These sumac roasted potatoes taste amazing on their own. They melt in your mouth. You really don’t need anything else. Plus, they require a minimal effort and time to make.

But I decided to add some crunch with the cucumber and also a little more flavor with the dressing and mint. The final result – the perfect light potato dish.
