As Laura of Glowingly Well writes, “Pick something you love and make a salad out of it!”
“I was in the mood for some crispy roasted potatoes that POP in your mouth, so I decided to make some and throw them on a salad. I had some of these veggies already cut up in the fridge and others I cut up fresh.”
“Of course I had to make another salad to take for lunch, so I get to enjoy it again. Full disclosure, before I made this salad, I had a cookie. I gotta balance my yin with some yang.”
Potatoes are a great source of vitamins C and B-6, potassium, and other minerals. When eaten with the skin, they are high in complex carbohydrates and fiber; one medium sized baked potato (with the skin) provides 25 mg of vitamin C, which is more than 25% of the RDA (recommended daily allowance). Who knew they had vitamin C?
Not to sure about my yin and yang at the moment, but I can definitely attest that Summer Salad with Roasted Potatoes will be a new summer staple at my house.
