*Creamer potatoes grilled with a blend of herbs and spices, then tossed in a creamy barbecue dressing with bacon and green onions – great warm or cold!
So grilling potatoes is my new favorite thing.
Maybe I’ve mentioned this before (nod your head and smile like you actually read those posts), but I never really cared much about grilling before this summer. This summer, I’m all about bringing you the best of the summer season.
Potato salad. Grilled potatoes. Barbecue. Bacon.
Seemed like a pretty good combo to me.
And it was.
Maybe I’ve also mentioned once or twice that I don’t reeeeally eat salad. I mean, I eat potato salad (duh). And fruit salad and taco salad and maybe jello salad (it’s a thing, right?). But I just can’t do regular green salad.
And in most cases, I even cringe at a jar of mayo. But potato salad? I love it! Even the regular old potato salad with just the mayo. I don’t know what it is. There’s nothing I love more than some potato salad with my barbecue.
I thought about adding barbecue sauce to my potato salad “dressing”, and I’m a big fan of barbecue and bacon together. And I really wanted to try making a potato salad with grilled potatoes (warm or cold) to add to that smokey barbecue bacon potato salad.
And also because I have these handy BBQ Ready packs from The Little Potato Company (shameless plug – I just love them!). You might have seen them in this No Dishes Grilled Breakfast Casserole I made with them last month? You’re probably not going to want to miss that one.
The best part of this here?
I mean, besides the grilled potatoes and the barbecue sauce and the bacon.

My sister-in-law makes these tiny salt-crusted potatoes. You would think they would be too salty to eat, but they are delicious. I would give these to her, or have her over, and have her make us some!!!
Haha, that’s a great idea! I’ve had those potatoes once and they’re delicious! I really need to try making them 🙂
I’d make this salad. It looks fantastic! I think I’m adding it to the menu for this weekend. Thanks!
Thanks! I hope you like it!

I would start with splitting the potatoes then put them i a pan with butter and rosemary and parsley and crumbled bacon, Then warm them and ad some Cajun seasoning
That sounds amazing!
Denise M says
Its lunchtime at work, I want this so bad! I would make some sort of hash with it with leftover meat and veggies
That’s a great way to use up leftovers!
Annie @Maebells says

I love roast potatoes with rosemary – and I would have to toss a coin to see if I would use Little Potatoes for that or for your mouthwatering potato salad with BACON!!!!
Haha, apparently I can’t leave bacon out of anything!
Medha @ Whisk & Shout says

Grilled potatoes are totally my new love! I especially love a few chopped sweet potatoes thrown into the mix too! Waaaay too good. 😉 But seriously, this salad? I am dyyyyyyying! All that bbq plus bacon PLUS salad business is totally just a win-win. 😀 Pinned!
Haha, thanks Sarah! I think it’s the best way to eat salad 🙂

Perfect for summer!
Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice says
I am totally craving this salad for breakfast Ashley! I was just actually thinking about making a potato salad a few days ago with different ingredients since I don’t care for the regular kind, so I’m loving this version. Such a fantastic idea to add in bbq sauce! Pinned!
Thanks Gayle! It’s nice to mix things up every once in a while!
Yes, yes, yes! Could this salad possibly get better, I don’t see how!
