Making Tuesday Tasty-Roasted Potato Wedges With Lime Cilantro Mayo

I love how creative people are about the grill. I currently have grill envy as I'm without a grill at my place and have actually gone over to my Sister's to grill my food ha ha. Here is a gourmet take on a side of fries and oh so yummy! I read somewhere recently that you can shave as much as 500 calories off your regular meals just by grilling and many people do it to lose weight. Basically the same idea as a popular indoor grill that's sold. ;) Lots of great Summer treats out there folks, have fun.

For potatoes:
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 pounds baking potatoes (about 4 medium), each cut into 8 wedges

For cilantro-lime mayonnaise:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro
2 teaspoons grated lime 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

Roast potatoes:
Put a 4-sided sheet pan in lower third of oven and preheat oven to 450°F.
Stir cumin, oregano, and 3/4 teaspoon salt into oil in a large bowl. Add potatoes and toss. Arrange potatoes, cut sides down, in 1 layer in hot pan and roast, turning once, until golden, about 40 minutes.
Meanwhile, make mayonnaise:
Stir together mayonnaise, sour cream, cilantro, lime zest and juice, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small serving bowl.
Serve potatoes with mayonnaise.
