The season of grilling is here, and I finally have a place where I have backyard space and I cannot wait to get my hands on a grill. Aside from all the wonderful main meaty dishes that accompany this season, side dishes are something that never really gets a second thought or much attention. I think that’s ok, let’s be honest, we are all very excited about hot dogs and hamburgers. So having a good side dish recipe (or two, LOVE this one also) is a good think to have in your repertoire. I like this Creamy Roasted Potato Salad for a couple of reasons. The first is the fact these potatoes are roasted, and I love roasted potatoes. When you roast them the skin gets all crispy, and the inside perfectly soft and when you bite into the potato it has a little snap. I love that. The second reason is that this side dish requires an oven, not a grill, so you can jam pack you grill with other stuff. Running out of space for hot dogs is just not ok. This Creamy Potato Salad recipe is also easy to make, and doesn’t require anything crazy. Enjoy and happy summer eating!
