I tossed in a little more olive oil, then roasted the potatoes for around 20 mins after mixing in the salsa, as I thought the spring onions and garlic made it a little strong. They turned out beautifully!

Very tasty but made a few changes. I added some coriander (my favourite herb) and used lemon juice instead of water. Made a nice side dish and will probably have the rest with some goats cheese tomorrow.

My husband thoroughly enjoyed these potatoes but I wasn't so sure - I think I'd cook the garlic first. Will try again.

Excellent. I used double the potatoes without doubling the salsa and it was fine. Very easy + quick.
