I make this roasted potato salad every single summer. It’s one of my favorite potato recipes. Do not skip out on roasting the garlic it is a must. Don’t get me started on garlic mayo! If it’s on the menu at a sandwich place I’m ordering it. 70 cents extra? You got it.
Its just roasted garlic and mayo whisked together with a little salt and pepper. I throw it on burgers all the time and then I started dipping french fries and it all led to this. The star ingredient is def the roasted garlic. Use lots of fresh chives and this will be a major hit at your next get together.
