Grilled potatoes are tossed with bacon, grilled onions and a mustard dressing to make GRILLED POTATO SALAD, a delicious side for any backyard barbecue!
During the heat of August I try to keep my oven off as much as I can. It’s been pretty hot here lately and I’m not as used to it as I was when we lived in Arizona. In the evenings it does cool down but it takes time for the inside of my house to cool so I like to cook dinner out back on the grill. That way my house isn’t hotter and I can relax on the back porch while dinner cooks. I had never tried potatoes on the grill before I made this and I’m so glad that I did! They were delicious and tasted great the next day also.
The grilling the potatoes you get a great outside and then the inside is soft and airy. Adding the grilled onion and bacon make them even better and it really is simple to make. I love that they are dressed with mustard and olive oil. That means that they can be made for a barbecue for friends and you don’t have to worry about them sitting out! I ate these straight off the grill and pipping hot and then later after they had cooled to room temperature and I really can’t say which was better. My husband couldn’t get enough of them so you know they’re good.
