  • 3 pounds baby red potatoes, cut in half
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 4 ounces crumbled blue cheese
  • 6 bacon slices, cooked and crumbled
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste

Preheat grill or oven to 400° F.

Place potatoes in a single layer in center of a large piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Drizzle with olive oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bring up foil sides over potatoes; double fold top and side edges to seal, making 1 large packet. Cook the potatoes, in foil packet, covered with grill lid, 15 minutes on each side. Remove packet from grill. If using oven, cook potatoes uncovered for 20-25 minutes. Let potatoes cool for 5 minutes.

Whisk together mayonnaise and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl; add potatoes, salt and pepper, tossing gently to coat. Stir in onion, blue cheese, and bacon.
