Grilled Onion and Potato Salad

Grilled Onion and Potato Salad

Use a grill basket or thread the potatoes and onions onto skewers before grilling to prevent them from falling through the grate. Dress the vegetables while still warm so they absorb the tangy dressing mixture. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
