I saw this one on an old thread this morning and loved it - great recipes. And there are other threads out there, I know, but they're getting bulky. So we'll say this is for the first two weeks of May, then take it from there.
One of my favorites is Grilled Red Potato Salad with Bacon-Blue Cheese Vinaigrette:
4 lb. new potatoes, scrubbed and cooked until almost tender. Drain and cut in half.
1/4 cup olive oil
salt and freshly ground black pepper
3/4 lb. hickory smoked bacon
1 large red onion, finely sliced
1/4 cup plus 2 tb. white wine vinegar
1 tb. sugar
1/4 cup chopped fresh parlsey
1 cup crumbled Maytag blue cheese
Preheat grill. Toss potatoes with olive oil, s&p. Grill cut side down for 3 minutes. Turn and do 3 minutes more. Place in a large bowl. Place medium skillet on the side burner of the grill and heat until almost smoking. Add the bacon and cook, drain, crumble. Remove all but 2 tb. of the fat from the pan., Add the onions and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add 1/4 cup olive oil, vinegar and sugar and cook until sugar is dissolved. Pour over the putatoes and add the bacon and parsley and toss to combine. Season to taste. Sprinkle with the blue cheese. 8 servings.
Love to make this in the summer, so so good. Have subbed white balsamic for the white vinegar.
Will be back to post more of my faves later.
