  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C degrees.
  2. Spread potatoes on a sheet pan and cover tightly with some foil. Cook potatoes for 12 minutes, then remove foil and toss with olive oil and some salt and pepper. Return pan to oven and continue cooking until potatoes are tender, ~10 minutes. Remove from oven again and spoon pesto (remember to reserve half the pesto for Thursday) and olives over potatoes. Crumble feta on top and bake until everything is heated through, ~5 minutes.
  3. While potatoes roast, whisk together vinegar, mustard and honey. Continue to whisk while pouring in olive oil. Toss dressing with spinach, pecan halves and apples.
  4. Serve roasted potatoes with salad on the side and enjoy!
