BBQ Chilli Potato Salad

This beautiful sunny weather is perfect to put the charcoal on and stay outdoors for as long as possible. We have even bought a padding pool to keep us refreshed while the food is cooking on the BBQ. 

As we never know how long the British summer is going to last, let’s make the most out of it while we can!

Potato salads are a must have dish in any BBQ. It is too hot to be slaving by the stove, so we gave it a twist to reduce preparation time and washing up.

Instead of boiling the potatoes, they are seasoned with chilli oil, garlic and rosemary and cooked slowly on the charcoal, wrapped in foil. Once they are cooked, you simply need to add wild rocket, spring onions and pomegranate.

Taste the Different British Gems baby new potatoes are perfect for the BBQ chilli potato salad. Sainsbury’s freshest new potato is harvested and delivered from field to store within 48 hours.

They are grown in Britain, the packet that we bought is from Andrew Williams in Suffolk. You can definitely taste the freshness in the new potatoes, as well as the distinctive buttery flavour, which complement the dish.
