Veggies and Potatoes Galore – Grilled Potato Salad with Chile Vinaigrette

Posted by   + Show Post



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?

I usually like the potatoe salad if its right beside the meat from a bbq.. it kind of warms it up a bit.

Quoting Rushn311:

That looks real good, but I am just not a fan of potato salad because it's usually always cold.  It just turns me off. My dad made this awesome German potato salad(told to me by everyone who consumed it) but never tried it because it was cold, had vinegar in it. Thanks for sharing tho.

yeah, I wonder the same thing.. would be kids actually eat the vinagrette? Probably not. 

Quoting Dabberdoo:

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

Yum.  (Even though I know my whole family would be like, 'hey, where's the mayo?')
