Looking for a different spin on your potato salad? Try this version that uses grilled potatoes in a light lemon and dill dressing. It makes a fantastic side dish for poultry, seafood, or meat dishes. 

Potatoes are par-cooked to make the grilling task easier, as you only need to focus on the skin color not cooking the potatoes all the way through. If you don’t have this option the potatoes can be fully cooked on the grill. It just needs to be done for a longer time at a lower temperature.

If while camping you don’t have access to fresh lemons you can swap them out for a similar acid such as vinegar. The dill can also be swapped out for your favorite herbs such as cilantro, basil, or even mint.
