Roasted Baby Gold Potatoes with Arugula

Simple sides...

That's what this post is about.  Need a new side dish?  Stuck on the usual ones?  Well, everyone loves potatoes so why not serve them in a new way.

This potato side is simple to make.  The oven does all the work, and with the addition of arugula you get some added greens.  Plus it tastes fabulous!

The nice little dressing give it a little zip, so make sure not to skip that part.  

One try of these potatoes and they may become your new "go-to" dish!

Roasted Baby Gold Potatoes with Arugula 

serves 4

1 lb baby gold potatoes, halved
1 T olive oil
1 T minced garlic
salt & pepper
1 - 1 1/2 c arugula, loosely packed
1 T lemon juice
1 T olive oil

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

In a bowl toss potatoes with oil, garlic, salt & pepper.  Spread out in a flat layer on the cookie sheet making sure they are cut side down.  Bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

Remove from oven and place back in the large bowl.  Immediately stir in the arugula and cover with plastic wrap.  Allow to steam 5 minutes to wilt the arugula.  Whisk together the lemon juice and the olive oil and toss with the potatoes.  Serve.
