Ready in 45 minutes

Side dish that has the flavor of the grill and the smokey bacon flavor. Great with tenderloin or thick chops.


6 slices thick-cut bacon; cooked until crisp, then coarsely crumbled
2 pounds red new potatoes; (golf-ball size), scrubbed and poked with a fork
2 tablespoons Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
4 green onions; including green tops, cut crosswise into thin rounds
1/4 cup Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 large clove garlic; minced
2 tablespoons fresh parsley; minced
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon Sugar
1 teaspoon Black Pepper; freshly ground

Original recipe makes 6



Prepare a medium fire in a charcoal grill or preheat a gas grill on medium. In a medium bowl, toss potatoes with olive oil until well coated.

Arrange potatoes around cool outer edges of grill or place on upper rack if grill is so equipped. Cover and grill potatoes until tender when pierced with a knife, about 20 minutes.

While potatoes are grilling, put green onions and bacon in a large bowl, and make dressing. Combine olive oil, vinegar, garlic, parsley, salt, sugar and pepper in a small bowl. Set aside.

When potatoes are tender, transfer to a cutting board and cool for 5 minutes. Cut potatoes in half and add to bacon and onions in the bowl. Stir dressing to combine and pour over potatoes. Gently toss to thoroughly combine. Serve immediately. (The potato salad can be made up to 2 hours prior to serving. Cover and set aside at room temperature.)

I steamed instead of grilling potatoes. Big hit! Was asked for the recipe.

I made this recipe with steamed potatoes and used white wine vinegar instead of apple cider vinegar. It turned out great.

Absolutely fantastic. While I had to sub balsamic vinegar for the apple cider vinegar and garlic powder for the fresh garlic (these were only what I had on hand.) it still turned out amazing.

Wonderful! My entire cookout was a success because of these potatoes.

I really enjoyed this - but I think my husband is trying to tell me he doesn't like green onions. Maybe I'll listen...
