Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the grill to high. Brush potatoes and scallions with olive oil and place on grill. Grill potatoes for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or till just tender. Grill scallions until softened and you can see the grill marks. Remove scallions from the grill and cut into thin slices.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup olive oil, Dijon mustard, apple and balsamic vinegars, and honey. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add potatoes, scallions, and parsley and toss until potatoes are well coated.
  3. Move to a platter and serve. Enjoy!

This was a good recipe. It is similar to a German potato salad due to the vinegar in it. The sweet from the potatoes combines with the smokiness of the grill and the tang of the vinegar and the bite of the onions, and it all works and is very good! You could probably throw in some bacon and it would be better. But I just have one question- I've checked the Food Network's recipes but can't find an answer- is this supposed to be served hot or cold?? I preferred it room-temp, for what it's worth.

"Fantastic Sweet Potatoes! Please make them again!" was what DH2B said while eating these! I did not try them but did taste the sauce and it was really really good! Bobby Flay did it again! Thanks Sharon for posting this awesome keeper! KC thanks you too! *Zaar World Tour 3*
