Grill your potato salad? Yes, you can.


Culinary Tips

--Grilling potatoes adds that great charred flavor to a dish that normally sits on the side!

--Be sure to par-boil the potatoes before adding them to the grill! Use the direct heat of the grill for flavor rather than to cook the potatoes all the way through. 

--You don't need mayonnaise to make a great potato salad! This tangy mayo-less recipe is packed full of fresh herbs and flavor!
