Grilled Potato Salad with Lemony Mayo

  • Author: Jess Pryles



3 lb red or yukon gold potatoes

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 c chopped flat leaf parsley

1/2 cup fried onions

3/4 cup mayonnaise

Juice & zest of one large lemon

23 tablespoon cider or white wine vinegar

1 tablespoon dijon mustard



  1. Clean the potatoes well using cold water, but leave the skins on. Cut into large chunks that will be manageable for grilling (ie – don’t cut them too small and end up with too many pieces to turn!).
  2. Place potatoes in a large pot of cold salted water and bring to the boil. Boil until they are *just* tender, and a sharp knife can piece the flesh (they will finish cooking on the grill). The length of time will depend on the size and variety of potato, but about 10-15 minutes. If you overcook the potatoes they will crumble on the grill and be difficult to manage.
  3. Once the potatoes have softened slightly, drain the water, then toss is the olive oil and sprinkle with a generous amount of salt.
  4. Heat a grill to medium, about 305-400f. Place the potatoes onto the grates and cook, turning every 3-5 minutes so grill marks develop on all sides. Once cooked, remove the potatoes to a large bowl.
  5. In a bowl, combine mayo, lemon juice & zest, vinegar and mustard. Salt to taste. Scrape this mixture over the warm potatoes and toss to coat. Add the parsley and toss again.
  6. Garnish with fried onions and serve while warm.
