Grilled Potato Salad
Smoky grilled potatoes dressed in a highly seasoned vinaigrette are a relative newcomer to America's grilling repertoire, but they are a worthy addition.
Why This Recipe Works
Smoky grilled potatoes in a highly seasoned vinaigrette are a worthy addition to a griller’s repertoire, but most recipes require a lot of precision tong or spatula work. For a recipe with an easier approach, we precooked waxy Red Bliss potatoes, which hold their shape better than other types, and cut down on the number of potato pieces that needed to be flipped by using large potatoes and cutting them into thick planks. We also wanted our Grilled Potato Salad recipe to taste smoky—but not so much that it was overwhelming. To moderate the smoke flavor, we used bold ingredients like garlic, capers, and parsley in the vinaigrette.
