New Potatoes with Citrus Horseradish Dressing recipe are especially good with beef. Roasting potatoes is the best way to create a quick and easy side dish. These delicious potatoes can be made in your oven or microwave!
When purchasing new potatoes, look for firm potatoes that are free from blemishes and sunburn (a green discoloration under the skin). Some amount of skinned surface is normal, but potatoes with large skinned and discolored areas are undesirable.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Wash potatoes and then pat dry. Pare a thin strip around middle of each potato (this is only done to make a pretty presentation).
In a casserole dish, combine melted butter, lemon pepper, lime juice, horseradish, and salt. Stir in prepared new potatoes until well coated.
Cover and bake 1 hour or until potatoes are easily pierced with a fork. Remove from heat. NOTE: This recipe can also be cooked in a microwave oven for 7 to 10 minutes on high.
Just before serving, spoon hot dressing (from bottom of pan) over potatoes and sprinkle with cilantro and the orange and lemon zests.
Makes 6 to 8 servings.
* What are new potatoes? They are freshly harvested young or small potatoes that have paper-thin skins. They tend to be sweeter than older potatoes. Look for new potatoes that have smooth, undamaged, and unblemished skins. The potatoes should be dry and feel firm. New potatoes can be stored at room temperature, but because they have not been cured, they will not last as long as regular potatoes -- several days instead of several weeks. Photo from Fine Cooking.
