A “Zesty” Twist On A Summer Favorite And Cocktails To Cool Off With Sherita Rankins

Studio 512

It may not feel like it when there’s rain, but summer is just around the corner. We’re keeping our fingers crossed for better weather as Memorial Day approaches, and with us this morning was Sherita Rankins of Busy Wife Busy Life to dish up something healthy and delish for those poolside parties.

Sherita shared a recipe for a zesty grilled potato salad with a horseradish dressing that she says is healthier than a traditional potato salad, but so simple to prepare.

  • 1 lb. red potatoes
  • 1 lb. white potatoes
  • 2-3 Tbsp. horseradish, as desired
  • 1.5 oz. olive oil spray
  • 4-6 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/3 c. white wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 c. red onion finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon zest
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh parsley chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. crushed red peppers
  • 4 c. water, for boiling
  1. Bring 4 c. water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add potatoes; cook 5 to 7 minutes. Drain, pat dry, and cut potatoes into rounds 1/4″ thick. Spray with approximately 1.5 oz. olive oil spray, or brush with 2 Tbsp. of olive oil if using liquid version. Sprinkle potato rounds with 1-2 Tbsp. of horseradish, as desired.
  2. While the potatoes are boiling, coat grill rack of outdoor grill with nonstick cooking spray and preheat it to medium low (250-300°F) to prevent potatoes from burning. If you don’t have an outdoor grill, you can grill potatoes in a grill pan over medium heat.
  3. Depending on your grill and your desired temperature, grill potatoes for about 10-15 minutes or until browned on the edges and tender, turning occasionally. Place the potatoes on a wire rack to cool slightly, then transfer to a large mixing bowl.
  4. Combine vinegar, 4 Tbsp. olive oil, mustard, onion, remaining 1 Tbsp. horseradish, lemon zest, parsley, and red pepper flakes in a small bowl. Add to potatoes, stirring well. Serve warm or chilled.
