On the 4th of July, I had a bag of red potatoes and needed to make a “dairy-free” red potato for those of us who are not having dairy products these days, as well as a dairy-filled something or other. I made the Grilled Red Potatoes for the guys and me, and this for Steve and my MIL. It’s a grilled spin-off of the Roasted Red Potato Salad that I made this winter.
