- 1 pound Red Potatoes

- 1 Pinch salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 pound Bacon to make homemade bacon bits
- 5 Tablespoons White Vinegar
- 1/3 cup Avocado Oil
- 2 T Dijon Mustard
- 1 tsp Celery Salt

Wash and clean the potatoes. Cut off any blemishes or bruises. Peel the sweet potato and leave the skins on the other potatoes. Cut the small potatoes in half and cut the larger potatoes into similar size chunks. 1-1 1/2" chunks.
Bring 2 quarts of water to boil, salt the water with 2 tsp of water. You need only enough water in the pot to cover the potatoes.
Boil the potatoes for 15 minutes. Do not cook the potatoes all the way through. Cook them only until you can put a fork in them without much force. (You will cook them the rest of the way on the grill)
Preheat the grill.
Strain the water off the potatoes. Add 2 Tablespoons of Avocado oil or another kind of cooking oil.
Spray the grill with non-stick cooking spray. Place the potato chunks on the hot grill and lightly salt and pepper them.
Grill the potatoes on each side for 4-5 minutes or until they are lightly golden and have grill marks.
Cut the slices of bacon into 3/4" chunks. In a frying pan, add a half-pound of the chunked up bacon. cook on medium heat for about 5 minutes until the bacon bits are golden brown and slightly crispy. With a slotted spoon, scoop out the bacon bits and let them cook on a paper plate lined with a few layers of paper towels.
In a small mixing bowl, combine the white vinegar, Avocado oil, Dijon mustard, celery salt, and green onions.
When the potatoes are done, take them off the grill, add the bacon bits, and lightly drizzle the dijon mustard vinaigrette. Toss the potato salad. Taste test and then add the salt and pepper if desired.
You can serve this potato salad warm or cold. If you want to serve it cold, store it in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving.
