Tri Color Potato Salad #BBQWeek

This delicious salad begins with 3 varieties of potatoes tossed in wine while still warm and then dressed with Dijon vinaigrette.

Tri Color Potato Salad

Every BBQ needs Potato Salad and this version is perfect.  It is served at room temperature and is safe to leave out without refrigeration during those summer get togethers.
The Festive Foodies are sharing BBQ recipes all week long.  Christie of A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures invited us saying that anything you would find at a BBQ is fair game.

I joined in on Monday with this Pulled Pork made on my new smoker grill.  I'm back today with a wonderful potato salad that is perfect for a BBQ.

I always thought I didn't like potato salad.  I would always pass it by at pot lucks, picnics and bbqs.  Then I made this Potato and Green Bean Salad that was dressed in vinaigrette instead of mayo and discovered that I loved potato salad made this way.

And while I still make mayo based potato salads for my family who loves it like this Bohemian Style Potato Salad filled with veggies or this Potato and Pea salad dressed in Buttermilk Dressing, I much prefer those without mayo like this Hot O'Brien Potato Salad and this beautiful salad I'm sharing with you today.

I'm looking forward to life getting back to normal, opening the pool and hosting a BBQ. When it does I will be going onto social media and searching #BBQWeek for menu inspiration.  Until then Stay Home/Stay Safe/Stay Well.
