Light, flavorful and very easy to prepare. This salad is made with sumac roasted white potatoes, crunchy Persian cucumber, fresh mint and light dressing. The dressing is made with just four simple ingredients - oil, lemon juice, sweet paprika and salt. Perfect for any time of the year, this salad is vegetarian and gluten free. You can enjoy it on its own, or serve it with white fish or chicken.

  3. Roast potatoes for 25-30 minutes, flipping once, until golden and cooked through. Roast for additional 5-10 minutes, if potatoes appear undercooked.
  4. Transfer to a bowl and let them cool for 20 minutes.
