What is the number one side dish for most grilling meals? In my book, potato salad is number one, and a Midwestern staple dish.
We can’t believe how quickly Memorial Day and grilling season has snuck up on us!
Anytime we have a family meal and there is food being grilled, we always have potato salad. I have to admit that I have never tried making my own potato salad before so I was extra excited about trying out Chef Billy Parisi’s recipe.
Since we have been in a grilling mood (check out the recipe for the Egg, Sausage and Queso Breakfast Sandwich), it made sense to try the grilled potato salad recipe. We already had the coals heated up so we might as well use them.
In the past, I have grilled chunks of potatoes but never whole potatoes. Make sure you have a good pair of tongs. The skins of the potatoes are likely to peel off when you try to rotate them.
One thing I tried with this recipe was to cook the bacon directly on the grill. For me, that resulted in really burnt not very good tasting bacon.
So, I grilled up the bacon in an iron skillet over the coals, which gave the bacon flavor and without the grease flare ups.
If you enjoy sweet onions, you can add half an onion to this recipe. Just add a bit of oil to your thick slices and grill them up. I, however, am not a fan so I did not add them to this recipe.
