Garlic Potato Salad is a warm potato salad that starts with tiny baby potatoes that are roasted until crisp on the outside and fluffy inside. After roasting, the hot potatoes are coated with an abundance of garlicky oil and vinegar before being tossed with plenty of chives and parsley.

When I say that this potato salad is a garlic lover’s dream come true, I’m not exaggerating. I have made this twice already this week and I plan to make it again next week too.

If you’ve known me for long, you know how much I love sharing awesome recipes that come together with a minimum of fuss.

This Garlic Potato Salad is a great example of how simple fresh ingredients can be used to create a memorable meal with just a few minutes time spent in the kitchen.

Here in Phoenix, we’re well into the crazy heat of summer. And once it gets hot outside, there isn’t much I like more than foods that I can pull together early in the morning and either reheat or serve cold or at room temperature whenever we’re ready to eat later in the day.

The first time I made this Garlic Potato Salad, I could not stop eating it straight out of the mixing bowl. The potatoes are completely irresistible covered in garlic and so much pepper.

They’re fantastic piping hot from the oven (just try not to burn your mouth!) and they’re every bit as tasty at room temperature. That makes this a heck of a “keeper” recipe for barbecues, picnics, and potlucks all summer long.

I loved these potatoes so much that I came up with a quick and easy way to transform this amazing side dish into a quick and easy dinner for the family.

Saute some kielbasa just long enough to crisp the edges and lightly brown the sausage while the potatoes are roasting. After the potatoes have been tossed with the garlicky dressing, add the hot sausage and serve hot or at room temperature.

Because both versions of this recipe serve nicely at room temperature, this Garlic Potato Salad is an excellent make-ahead meal in the hot summer months, both with and without meat.

I served this potato salad with lemon and herb grilled chicken the first time I made it and my family loved the whole meal.

Warm Potato Salad Recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place the potatoes on a large baking sheet. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss with your hands to coat the potatoes well. Roast 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and stir. Roast another 15 minutes until the potatoes are lightly browned and crisp.

  2. Transfer the potatoes to a medium-size bowl. Whisk together the garlic, vinegar, oil, salt, and pepper in a small measuring cup or bowl. Pour over the potatoes and stir well to coat. Sprinkle with chives and parsley and toss well. Serve hot or at room temperature.

  3. QUICK AND EASY DINNER OPTION: Slice 12-16 ounces Kielbasa sausage very thinly. Warm 1 teaspoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and saute for 5-6 minutes until lightly browned and slightly crisp. Add the sausage to the bowl with the potatoes and toss to coat everything in the garlic dressing. Serve warm or at room temperature.

I like to buy the tiniest potatoes I can find for this recipe and simply slice them in half. However, any potato will work. Simply cut the potatoes into 1-inch pieces.

    Mary, I just printed your recipe for garlic potatoes. All I need is to look at the photos and ingredients to see a winner. For me potatoes are a deal breaker. I will never return to your diner or restaurant if the potatoes don’t look good or taste good. Thanks.5 stars

    I have been looking for a recipe for roasted potatoes that I can make ahead and serve at room temperature for the holidays! I have a small oven and too much to make at the same time. This recipe is a life saver. I will be trying ahead and if it’s as good as it seems will be making for Christmas this year. Thank you!

    This is absolutely delicious!! I made this tonight as a trial run. We will be serving it at a birthday party this weekend.
    This recipe is perfect! I wouldn’t change a thing. My husband loves it too, and he isn’t really a fan of vinegar. But the vinegar really isn’t strong or overpowering. Just the right amount of salt, too.
    Thank you so much for the wonderful recipe!5 stars
