1 juice of lemon

1•whisk all ingredients for dressing together and place in fridge if you would like it to firm up. Not necessary, but I prefer this.

2•preheat oven to 450 and make sure you have a rack on the lowest level

3•coat the potatoes with olive, salt and pepper. I like to do this in a gallon bag

4•place on a foil lined baking sheet FLESH side down so the skin in exposed and roast for 25-30 minutes on bottom rack. The potatoes should be easily cut, but crispy on the flesh

5•top with dressing and oregano. Enjoy!
