Grilled Potato Salad and Steak

Remember the potato salad you grew up eating? With the mayonnaise and the relish. Well this isn’t your grandmother’s potato salad. It’s still full of that wonderful potato flavor, minus all of the fat and sodium. Seasoning and grilling the potatoes gives it a great flavor, especially when you serve it with some nice pieces of steak. And some sangria (click here for a deliciously simple and fruit filled sangria recipe). This new era potato salad will not disappoint your taste buds or your dinner guests. Plus the entire meal was only about 20$ to make. Grilling is a perfect outdoor activity during the summer which makes this dinner a must try.
