Cookout Sides

I love creating cookout sides. Cookout side dishes can be better than the main course! I will load my plate up with cookout sides every time!

Vinegar Potato Salad

I had the pleasure of working with The French Farm., I was drawn to this mustard they had and immediately thought of a vinegar potato salad. This french stone mustard sounded like it would be amazing in a vinegar potato salad.

French Potato Salad

I admit an Ina Gardner French Potato Salad is what inspired me to do my version of a herbed potato salad. I wanted to tweak the herbed potato salad so the potato basil salad flavor.  This French potato salad is a great alternative to mayo-based potato salad.


Potato Salad With Vinegar and Oil


Herbed Potato Salad

A French potato salad is a vinegar potato salad. The lemon and the added fresh basil helps make this a herbed potato salad.  I really turn up the flavor in this herbed potato salad. Plus a French potato salad recipe is healthier than the mayo potato salad for cookout sides.

Best Potato Salad

I feel like this easy potato salad recipe is the best potato salad. It is because it is a vinegar potato salad. It is because a traditional potato salad recipe has mayonnaise. This herbed potato salad does not. Try it and tell me if this isn’t the best potato salad!
