Skewered French Potato Salad

Serves 8

A new take on potatoes. Potatoes are grilled, served on a skewer like a kabob and topped off with a flavorful sauce made with parsley and chives.


  • 32 small new potatoes, cleaned
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 6 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 2 tablespoons minced chives


  1. Rub potatoes well with vegetable oil. Skewer potatoes onto 8 skewers (4 potatoes per skewer), leaving some space between potatoes. Grill over moderately hot fire, turning once, for about 20-25 minutes, until potatoes are tender. Meanwhile, whisk together remaining ingredients. Arrange skewers on serving platter; twist each potato open slightly with a fork and drizzle with the dressing, turning each skewer to coat potatoes well.
