Grilled Greek Potato Salad Recipe

Grilled Greek Potato Salad Recipe

My most requested summer recipe is wonderful warm, cold or at room temperature. Because the potato salad is dressed with a vinaigrette, not mayonnaise, it's ideal for outdoor occasions. —Robin Jungers, Campbellsport, Wisconsin

"This is great; I did not use cucumber as hubby is not fond of it, and used feta as another reviewer said to make it more Greek. A great change from mayo based salad, and I really liked it served warm."

"I'm not one for potato salads that have a heavy dressing and was glad to see one that look refreshing. It seemed like an awful lot of chopping. The salad itself wasn't terrible, but didn't "WOW" me in the taste department. It was more like a chopped salad with the addition of grilled potatoes."
