About this Recipe

Smokey, tangy, sweet and salty, this potato salad can be prepared easily on the grill and cutting board while everything else is BBQ'ing.


1.5 lbs very small red skinned potatoes
1 cup fresh or frozen baby peas (sweet)
.3 large red onion, finely sliced
6 rashers of Maple Leaf bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces
1.5 tbsp whole grained quality mustard
.20 cup balsamic vinegar (either red or white)
.33 cup virgin olive oil
kosher salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper to taste


1. Place all the small potatoes in a large foil envelope (misted with water) on the top rack of the BBQ to cook for 20 minutes.
2. Cut the onion into thin slices, place into a large bowl with frozen or fresh peas, add balsamic vinegar, mustard and pepper.
3. When potatoes are soft/steamed, place them on a grill plate on the BBQ. With a fork, flatten and break each potato so it's a bit smashed. drizzle olive oil on each potato and cook for another 5 minutes. At the same time, place the bacon on the grill to cook for 5 minutes also.
4. remove the potatoes and bacon and add to the onion and frozen/fresh pea mixture. Toss. Add more olive oil, if required. Add salt and pepper to taste.
5. Serve warm.
