Today’s recipe is the perfect example. This Sumac Roasted Potatoes and Cucumber Salad Recipe is perfect for Spring and Summer. I’m also using one of my favorite spices today – sumac. Check out this One Pan Sumach Chicken Thighs recipe or these Sumac Chicken Kabobs Quinoa Bowls, if you decide to try sumac.

It is a great seasoning for a spring meal, with its lemony flavor. Incredibly delicious, perfect to spice up your day.

All you need to do is get some sumac. The rest of the ingredients you may already have at home. Potatoes and cucumbers.

This Sumac Roasted Potatoes And Cucumber Salad makes a nice and light weekday lunch or weeknight dinner. You can also pack it for work. And it is filling, no wonder why, there are potatoes in it.

I’ve shared a lot of potato recipes with you since I started my blog back in 2013. It is a versatile vegetable and a family favorite. Everyone loves my Turmeric Roasted Potatoes Recipe, I just shared last month.

I cook potatoes at least twice a week and there are so many other potato recipes, I want to share with you.

If for some reason you don’t like the addition of cucumbers in this salad, I’ll totally understand.

These sumac roasted potatoes taste amazing on their own. They melt in your mouth. You really don’t need anything else. Plus, they require a minimal effort and time to make.

But I decided to add some crunch with the cucumber and also a little more flavor with the dressing and mint. The final result – the perfect light potato dish.

Hope you like it!
