I am so excited to be a part of the Kitchen PLAY and Knuckle Salad Munch Madness challenge that’s sponsored by US Potatoes – did you see the awesome badge on my sidebar? This challenge is all about potatoes where 8 food bloggers will create healthy, light recipes, perfect for spring and then the fun part begins. Those 8 recipes will go through a “March Madness” type bracketing playoff (see the infographic below) and one foodie will rein supreme. Will it be me? I sure hope so!

As soon as spring weather hits, I am all about warm potato salads using my barbecue wok, but since it’s still pretty cold out, I roasted the veggies in the oven instead. I used a bag of mixed fingerling potatoes, acorn squash and spinach & arugula mix. Tossed in some reduced fat feta cheese, fresh herbs, some heart healthy olive oil and a large pinch of red pepper flakes and the end result was a healthy side or lunch salad.
Potatoes have gotten a bad rep over the years as being a good for nothing starch, but did you know that one medium potato has more potassium then bananas, spinach or even broccoli? It’s true! See other great potato facts at http://www.potatogoodness.com/nutrition.
