One of the biggest requests we get in our email and on our Facebook Page is for more recipes for side dishes.

While this recipe is great at any time of the year, it seems the side dish requests become even more frequent during the summer BBQ and grilling season. It seems folks have no problem choosing what to put on the grill but have more difficulty trying to find just the right thing to serve with it.

We generally use organic honey in our recipes.

This simple recipe comes to the rescue in a quick and easy side dish. It can easily be served with any grilled meat or fish.

I’ve peeled the russet potatoes in this version. If you are using red or yellow skinned potatoes, feel free to just wash them well and leave them unpeeled as I usually do.

Yukon gold potatoes

Yellow potatoes are good for this recipe but any kind will work.

Try it with your next grilled or BBQ meal! Keep it in mind for fall and winter meals too, especially with roast chicken and pork dinners.

Using leftover boiled potatoes.

This honey dijon potato salad can even be made with leftover boiled potatoes. Just bring them back to a simmer in boiling water, then turn off the heat immediately and let stand for a couple of minutes before using them in this recipe.

I like to use whole grain mustard but regular dijon is fine too.

Cold boiled potatoes can also be used in an unheated version of this potato salad. I just use the red onions raw but finely minced and substitute  a 1/4 tsp of granulated garlic to add to the dressing before tossing with the potatoes.

We have a whole collection of Potato and Pasta Salads to browse too.
