Grills across the country are cleaned, oiled and ready to go for spring and summer nights and weekends! How about adding this Grilled Potato Salad With Bacon & Jalapenos to your menu?
Potato salad is an iconic American dish. It shows up at BBQ’s, baby showers and everywhere in-between. I teamed up with Side Delights for a fun, flavorful and healthy #PotatoSaladRedux. So with that in mind I gave potato salad a fresh & healthy update…Grab a fork and dig into my Grilled Potato Salad with Bacon & Jalapenos!
Don’t be shy…go back for seconds!!
This Grilled Potato Salad will hold up in the summer heat. No mayonnaise to worry about…and BONUS!! No need to scrub your potatoes, or heat a pot of water, or turn on the oven if you use Side Delights! Side Delights Steamables are triple washed and ready to be steamed in your microwave. No mess, no stress and no wasted water. Love that!
Look how clean they were straight out of the bag, red potatoes can be dirty so this was great. I happen to be a fan of leaving skins on potatoes. No its not because I am lazy, lol! I like the texture and the extra nutrients found in skins are great!
A platter of Grilled Potato Salad with Bacon & Jalapenos makes for a colorful, pretty addition to any meal or BBQ. Use whatever potatoes you enjoy. If they happen to be Side Delights, your prep time is cut down significantly (as is the heat generated in your kitchen).
Potatoes, Sauteed or grilled red or sweet onions, a simple and flavorful garlic oil, thin slices of jalapeno, fresh shaved Parmesan, herbs and bacon…gotta have some bacon…make for a fantastic and easy side dish. It looks impressive.
Years ago when Ree Drummond was a new-ish blogger and she first had her Tasty Kitchen site up, part of every members profile asked the question “favorite food”. It was then I realized that (what seemed like) half of America listed their favorite food as…potatoes! I can not argue that! Potatoes are so versatile. Soups, salads, mashed, fried, breakfast or dinner…Potatoes shine!
I hope you try out both my Grilled Potato Salad with Bacon and Jalapenos, and Side Delights Steamables. You will not be disappointed with either! Tag me on social media if you make this on Instagram or Facebook @soufflebombay or #soufflebombay I’d love to see your take on this!
