Nancy’s Grilled Maine Potato Salad

Summer grilling is a must during Maine’s brief hot and humid season. The warm weather and summer treats don’t seem to last long enough here, which is why grilling is such a fun way to cook while the weather permits. What’s grilling without a tasty side of potato salad? I’m a huge fan of buying local Maine potatoes and whipping together my homemade grilled Maine potato salad recipe. All you need are potatoes, my Sherry Honey Vinaigrette dressing, and some fresh chives and parsley to enjoy this summer dish.
