Behind the Recipe

Strike While The Grill's Hot

Growing up, it was always store-bought sides in giant, plastic tubs. I’ve never quite understood that. Some of my favorite foods in the world are garden-fresh grilled vegetables. So at my cookouts, when the meat comes off, the grill stays on. 

This Grilled Potato Salad Recipe is especially great because you can use a cast iron skillet directly on your grill grate. Because what’s meat without the potatoes?
