Grilled Pesto Potato Salad

Recipe by: Potato Goodness
Grilled potatoes and fresh pesto are the perfect combination for this fresh take on potato salad. 


  • 3 lbs medium-size red potatoes
  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 1/3 cup white or golden balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely minced fresh basil

Directions - Prep Time: 20min | Cook Time: 20min
  • Place potatoes in a large microwave-safe bowl; cover with lid or plastic wrap.
  • Microwave on high for 10 to 12 minutes or until potatoes are tender (cooking time may vary depending on microwave).
  • When cool enough to handle, cut potatoes in half or quarters and spray liberally with olive oil spray.
  • Grill over high heat for 5 to 7 minutes, turning occasionally, until grill lines are apparent. Remove from grill and let cool.
