Grilled Fingerling Potato Salad with Bacon-Cilantro Vinaigrette

18 Apr Grilled Fingerling Potato Salad with Bacon-Cilantro Vinaigrette

The fingerling potato salad makes a wonderful side item for almost any grilled entree.  I especially like it when I’m grilling pork or chicken breasts.   For this version, I made a Bacon-Cilantro Vinaigrette dressing, but you can make the potato salad with your favorite potato salad dressing in order to accentuate your main item.  While I’m normally a southern, creamy potato salad girl,  I do prefer a vinaigrette when I’m grilling.

The potatoes can be par-boiled ahead and then grilled along with your entree.  Mix up the dressing ahead of time and you can have an easy, no-stress dinner!

Grilled Fingerling Potato Salad with Bacon-Cilantro Vinaigrette
Fresh, with a hint of smoke, this will be a hit at any grill out! I always try to get mixed fingerlings, with blue, yellow and red to add some color and depth.

  4. Remove from grill and pour just enough dressing to coat potatoes.
  5. Serve warm along with entree.
For the Vinaigrette
  1. Add all ingredients except bacon to bowl and whisk. This is not an emulsion vinaigrette, so oil doesn't have to be drizzled in slowly.
  2. Add Bacon right before serving and whisk or shake.
