Instructions

  • Combine oil, garlic, salt & pepper Season it to your liking) in a mason jar and allow it to "steep" for 30 minutes to an hour.
  • Microwave your Steamables or scrubbed potatoes for 3-4 minutes in your microwave.
  • You want them to be partially cooked, not soft by any means, just not rock hard.
  • Allow them to cool a bit and then slice into rounds, placing them on a baking sheet as you do.
  • Slice your onion(s) into halves, thick slices or chunks (all depends on your choice of potato, I used fingerling and red for mine) and do the same.
  • Brush both potatoes and onions with your garlic oil, and then sprinkle with some additional salt and pepper (you can add smokey Paprika as well if you like).
  • Grill potatoes and onions, turning once (with tongs or a spatula and (brushing with the oil before you turn) until done.
  • Remove from grill, brush with more oil and assemble salad by adding in (layering or placing on a platter) the jalapenos, bacon Parmesan and parsley (don't be shy with those...go big!). Drizzle the remaining oil over-top (as much as you might enjoy), sprinkle with seasoning and enjoy warm or at room temperature.
