Grilled Potato Salad

gpsHmm… What is Grilled Potato Salad? Is it hot like German Potato Salad? Do you heat the whole mess in some container on the grill instead of in a pan on the stove? Is it made with grilled potatoes? Wouldn’t that make it Grilled Potato Potato Salad? What in the world?

Let me clarify. The potatoes are grilled. That is all. They are grilled, cooled and added to your favorite Potato Salad stuff. Shall we begin?

Grilled Potato Salad
1/2 cup of potatoes per person being served
1 tbsp of mayo per serving of potatoes
Chopped celery
Chopped onion – I used green onions, naturally
salt and pepper
celery salt

1. Toss your potatoes in olive oil, salt and pepper and grill for about 10 minutes. I used some cute little golden potatoes so I didn’t have to cut them. If you use normal sized potatoes, you will probably want to cut them into smaller pieces. If you find it easier, you can grill them on skewers.
2. Allow the potatoes to cool completely. Toss in the rest of the ingredients, cover and chill for at least an hour.
3. Serve with your favorite summer food!

We are not big eaters of anything made with mayo in our house. That partially explains why this is such a bizarre recipe. When I made it, I only made enough for two with the leftover potatoes that we had grilled to go with our bratwurst. I had to reverse engineer my recipe, believe it or not. It was the only way I could figure out how to make enough for a larger group. I hope it makes sense. If it doesn’t, certainly feel free to use your favorite potato salad recipe with grilled potatoes instead of the regular boiled potatoes.
