  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400F degrees.  Toss the potatoes with just enough olive oil to coat in a bowl with the spices and sea salt and spread out onto an oiled sheet pan.
  2. Place in the oven and roast in the oven for about 20-30 minutes (depending on your oven) until starting to brown and tender when pierced with a fork.  Once potatoes have finished cooking, let them cool to room temperature.
  3. Meanwhile, add all other ingredients to a bowl except the lime, olive oil and salt. Once the potatoes have cooled, toss it all together adding the lime, olive oil and salt.
  4. Serve at room temperature (or chill for later if you are serving it the next day).
