     Grilled Potato & Onion Salad w/ Blue Chz & Bacon

Category   Salads - Soups - Sidedishes
Sub Category   Grilling
Servings   12
Preptime   30 minutes

1 pound sliced meaty bacon
3 red onions, sliced 1/2 inch thick
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 1/2 pounds small new potatoes (about 1 1/2 inches in diameter), scrubbed
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 pound blue cheese, such as Gorgonzola, Roquefort or Maytag Blue, crumbled

Preheat the oven to 400°. Spread the bacon slices in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake until they are brown and crisp, about 15 minutes. Transfer the bacon slices to paper towel—lined plates to drain. Crumble into 1/2-inch pieces.
Light a grill. In a large bowl, toss the red onion slices with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Grill the onions over moderately high heat, turning once, until lightly charred and tender, about 5 minutes. Cut the grilled onions into 1/2-inch pieces.
In a large pot of salted cold water, bring the potatoes to a boil. Simmer until they are beginning to get tender, about 5 minutes. Drain the potatoes and cut them in half. In a large bowl, toss the potatoes with the remaining 3 tablespoons of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the potatoes over moderately high heat, turning once, until they are tender and browned, about 5 minutes. In a large bowl, mix the mayonnaise with the blue cheese. Add the bacon, onions and potatoes and toss to coat. Transfer the salad to a clean bowl and serve.
Whit’s Notes- 1. Regular bacon works fine too. I microwave the bacon because 1) it comes out crispier, 2) it’s easier and 3) it’s not as messy as baking or frying. 2. For the onions, keep sections of sliced onion together by sticking a wooden skewer through them, kabob style. Coat the onion with olive oil using a bbq brush or something, and then grill them. This keeps them from falling apart on the grill and falling into the grill. 3. Do ahead- You can cook the bacon, crumble and set aside. You can grill the onions and set aside. You can mix up the mayo mixture and set aside. You can partially cook the potatoes and set aside. Then, when it’s time to eat, all you have to do is grill the potatoes until they’re hot and done and toss everything together and serve!
