Recipes like this are KEEPERS. Ones that are incredibly simple, but have SO much flavour. Simple roasted potatoes are a delicious thing. I don't really need anything else to enjoy them, but drizzle them with this fresh, herby and bright mojo verde sauce... well, they become next level delicious.
I used baby potatoes for this recipe, but you can always use big potatoes and cut them into chunks. Just make sure to choose a starchy potato instead of a waxy potato. The starchy varieties are dryer, and they crisp up on the outside giving you a perfect contrast to their fluffy interiors.
Mojo Verde is a green sauce similar to Chimichurri or Salsa Verde, all of them are good drizzled on roasted potatoes. This mojo verde uses cilantro, lime, extra virgin olive oil, garlic, jalapeno and salt. I often have a jar of this or something similar kicking around in my fridge, because it's delicious with not only these roasted potatoes, but roasted vegetables, or stirred into rice or drizzled on a salad. Perfect thing to have on hand when you want to whip up something simple and delicious.
