Lemon and Herb Roasted Potato Salad

If you are one of those who just can't stand mayonnaise, you're going to LOVE this! I know these people too well, my mother is one of them! And if she saw this option at a cookout, she would be thrilled. This potato salad is lighter, featuring fresh herbs and the fresh flavor of lemon. Roasting the potatoes with thinly sliced onion gives them such a sweet flavor too. The best part is this dish is it's served at room temperature so you don't have to worry about it hot or cold where ever you take it!
