Roasted Potatoes with Cilantro Lime Mayonnaise

These were hands down the best roasted potatoes I've ever made. There texture and consistency were perfect. The taste was great. We all loved them.

The mayonnaise was unnecessary to enjoy the potatoes, but it didn't hurt the meal. I had a hard time getting the lime peel, so I ended up adding lime juice to taste instead. It tasted just fine.

Roasted Potato Wedges with Cilantro-Lime Mayonnaise
from Gourmet

For potatoes:
1/2 t ground cumin
1/2 t dried oregano
3 T olive oil
2 pounds potatoes, cut into wedges

For cilantro-lime mayonnaise
1/2 c mayonnaise
1/4 c sour cream
2 T finely chopped cilantro
2 t grated lime (or 1 t lime juice, to taste)

Stir cumin, oregano and 3/4 t salt into oil in a large bowl. Add potatoes and toss. Arrange potatoes, cut side down in 1 layer on a cookie sheet and roast in preheated 450 degrees oven, turning once until golden. Roasting time will take between 20 - 40 minutes depending on how thick you cut the wedges. Meanwhile, stir together all the mayonnaise ingredients.

Serve potatoes with the mayonnaise.
