I love to think outside of the box when making salads, and I love to use the grill. Here is the most delicious grilled potato salad recipe.
Although I cook on our grill year round, it’s when the weather shows hints of warmer weather when I start to cook on the grill almost daily. I absolutely love the flavors that the grill brings, and I’m always up for grilling dishes that may seem out of the ordinary. Like potatoes for grilled potato salad.
Truth be told, I haven’t tried a potato salad I didn’t like, but with all of those tastings, I was inspired to develop my own version of a potato salad showcasing all of the flavors that compliment the humble potato. Without question I wanted to bring in the grill rather than boiling, and with all of my recipe testing, one thing is for sure, once you make this grilled potato salad, it will undoubtedly be your favorite of all time.
The recipe sounds time-consuming, but in truth, it’s easy and comes together under 30 minutes. And if you can imagine, it tastes even better the next day.
