  • 1-1/2 lbs red potatoes quartered
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon agave syrup
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh basil
  • 4 strips bacon cooked and finely diced
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Place quartered potatoes in a medium pot and cover with water. Bring potatoes to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium and let potatoes simmer 10-15 minutes until just slightly tender, yet slightly firm. Drain potatoes and let cool slightly. Once cooled, lightly brush olive oil over potatoes.
  • Heat a grill to medium-high heat. Place potatoes on tin foil and grill 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally until potatoes are slightly charred and tender when poked with a fork. Remove potatoes from grill and transfer to a serving bowl.
  • Make the dressing: In a small bowl, whisk oil, lemon juice, mustard, and agave until smooth. Stir in basil, cooked bacon, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Pour dressing over grilled potatoes and gently toss to coat. Chill salad until ready to serve. Enjoy!
