Grilled Potato Salad

Posted by Brette in Food

GrilledPotatoSalad2I’m in love with this easy to make salad. And I’m doubly in love with it because it requires very little cooking and the ingredients were sent out with the husband to the grill.

2 scallions

6 medium potatoes

1/2 cup lemon olive oil

1 tsp lemon juice

1/2 tsp sugar

fresh herbs, chopped

salt and pepper

Rub the scallions with olive oil and char them on the grill until they soften and have some nice char marks. Slice into 1/2 inch pieces and set aside. Cut the potatoes into quarters and parboil until they are crisp tender. Rub them with olive oil and salt and pepper them and grill them, cut sides down, until they get some char marks and are soft all the way through (5-10 minutes). Whisk the oil, lemon juice, sugar, salt and pepper to taste and whatever fresh herbs you have on had (I used chives, rosemary, thyme and parsley). Mix the scallions with the potatoes and pour the oil mixture on top, tossing to coat. Serve warm. If you have leftovers, they taste better reheated than cold. If you don’t have lemon olive oil, use regular and add more lemon juice until the dressing tastes like a vinaigrette.
