Festive smashed potato salad

The perfect accoutrement for your Christmas dinner.




  1. Preheat the oven to 450F. Place the potatoes in a large pot with cold water. Bring the water to a boil and simmer the potatoes until they are fork tender. Strain and let the potatoes cool.
  2. Drizzle olive oil on a baking sheet and smash the potatoes by hand or with the base of a glass, keeping them in one piece. Place on the baking sheet and drizzle with more olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for 20-30 minutes or until golden and crispy.
  3. In a mixing bowl combine ingredients for dressing well.
  4. Toss the smashed potatoes in a bowl with dried cranberries, toasted pumpkin seeds and the dressing. Garnish with fresh herbs, cranberries and pumpkin seeds. Serve warm.
