Most potato salads have a nice, “linen” color. This one does not. Looks however, can be deceiving. Instead of boiling the potatoes we grill them until they are nicely charred, and mixing that flavorful carbonization with the pristine mayonnaise and sour cream doesn’t exactly look laundry fresh!

There’s not a lot to say about Broccoli. Some people don’t like it and the most famous person to emphatically state his aversion to the humble vegetable was the 41st President of The United States, George H.W. Bush. He said he hadn’t like it since his mother made him eat it. My guess is that she, like many other people, didn’t know that you can do something other than steam Broccoli.

If a root vegetable is going to be cooked, in my opinion there’s no better way to do it than roasting. Any vegetable that can stand up to this cooking method will retain its own distinctive taste, its inherent sweetness is enhanced and it will become tender without giving up its natural texture. It’s also super simple and requires next to no attention; so you can spend more time with other, more complicated parts of your meal preparation.
