BBQ RESCUES! Smoky Grilled Potato Salad Recipe (plus Video)

Skin-on Grilled Potato Salad with chopped Fresh Parsley, Grilled Bell Peppers and Onions offers more Nutrients than the typical Boiled Potato version; Mayo and Mustard are Optional.

Potato Salad seems to be a staple on the Menus of many cultures, from all across America, to Asia and throughout Europe. It is great paired with Grilled Foods like German Sausages, as a side dish with Korean BBQ and of course with American Barbecued Chicken and Ribs. Though Potatoes are not considered the most nutritious vegetables, they are known to be be much healthier served skin-on. Another advantage to Grilling vs. Boiling is they tend to retain more nutrients.

I first thought of doing Grilled Potato Salad while in the process of experimenting with Grilled Potato “Fries”. Having a few extra disks of crispy, perfectly grilled potatoes, I diced them and shared them with a restaurant neighbor who added a delicious dressing and fresh Herbs. Adding natural Wood Smoke takes this Grilled Salad to a new even more delicious dimension. I recently served the dish at a Birthday Catering in the park for a very special 1 Year Old and 130 of her closest Family and Friends. We caught some of it on video.

BBQ RESCUES! Smoking Grilled Vegetables Recipe

By Chef Mick Brown

For many people, the difference between Grilling and Barbecue comes down to one simple thing- Wood Smoking. Though Chefs can now do it indoors using Smoke Guns, many Home Grillers have yet to introduce the technique into their cooking. Especially those who use Gas Grills. I was recently hired to come to the aid of a wife, who purchased 2 Grilling Lessons as Father’s Day Gifts for her husband. It seems that a brand new Built-in Gas Grill that she gave him for his Birthday, had sat unused for over 9 months.

She put me in touch with her husband, who we will call Josh, by email. He informed me that he planned to invite “a few friends” over after our Lesson, to try out his food from the new Grill. No Pressure. We agreed that he would get most of the meats in advance, so we could do an abbreviated shopping trip before getting started. We did Recipes for Grilled Vegetables, Shrimp, Steak and Chicken Breasts. In this next part, here is the Grilled Veggies Recipe.
