Potato salad just screams spring. It's a favorite in our family and I never get board because there are a gazillion ways to make it. Take for instance this recipe for Grilled Potato Salad with Chile Vinaigrette. This was a totally new take on the potato salad for me - two types of potatoes, bell peppers and tomatoes create a colorful dish. Every bite packs a punch with green chiles and a zesty pepper blend. Here's how you make it:

 

1 can (4.5 ounces) Old El Paso® chopped green chiles

4 unpeeled small red potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch pieces (1 1/2 cups)

2 unpeeled Yukon gold potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch pieces (2 1/2 cups)

2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 medium yellow bell pepper, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

3 medium roma (plum) tomatoes, coarsely chopped (1 cup)

 

Chile Vinaigrette

1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar

Reserved 2 tablespoons Old El Paso® chopped green chiles

2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil

1/4 teaspoon black and red pepper blend

¼ teaspoon salt

 

  1. Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the chiles for Chile Vinaigrette; reserve remaining chiles for salad. Make Chile Vinaigrette.
  2. Place potatoes in grill basket (grill "wok"). Drizzle with oil; sprinkle with salt. Shake basket to mix and turn potatoes.
  3. Cover and grill potatoes 4 to 6 inches from medium heat 25 to 30 minutes, shaking basket or stirring potatoes occasionally, until tender. Add bell pepper to basket for last 5 minutes of grilling.
  4. Place Chile Vinaigrette in large bowl; stir in tomatoes and remaining green chiles. Add potatoes and bell pepper to tomato mixture in bowl; toss to mix.

Moms, what else would you make with this salad for the perfect spring meal?

Sounds interesting! It's too bad that we don't have a grill.

Chicken.  I couldn't fix this, though.  No way my kids would like the vinaigrette.
