Warm Grilled Potato Salad with Lemon and Oregano.

As regular readers will know, our family practically lives off the backyard grill in the summer months. With the season so short here in Newfoundland nobody could blame those like us who need to take as much advantage of the good weather as we possibly can.

Simple grilled fish, chops, steaks and chicken get regular rotation in our meal planning but like so many others, the real challenge with summer grilling is the question, “What are we going to serve with it.”

We are going to be concentrating more on great side dishes during this summer and this delicious warm potato salad was a big hot at dinner a couple of days ago. It is so simple and easy and comes together quite quickly too.

Red or yellow potatoes are best for this recipe because they hold together better and keep their shape when par-boiled and then grilled.

After grilling to golden brown it is then a simple matter of tossing them with the few other tasty ingredients before serving.

We crumbled feta cheese over this particular salad but it is not essential to the recipe. If you don’t like it or you can easily substitute freshly grated Parmesan or other hard cheese if you wish.

The grilling of the potatoes is the most important element here. You can really make many different grilled potato salads using this method. We often add chopped olives and red onion to this one for additional Greek flavours.

Use this idea to come up with other great flavour combinations with unique dressings to make other ideas come alive. Maybe bacon, parmesan and garlic with Caesar dressing? OH, now I can’t wait to try this one myself!
