Finger food at its bbq best! A drizzle of lemon-garlic vinaigrette and a sprinkling of feta and kalamata olives give it a Mediterranean spin.

Ingredients

  • Lemon-Garlic Drizzle1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp coarse kosher salt or sea salt
  • 1 Tbs fresh lemon juice
  • 3 Tbs olive oil
  • Grilled Potatoes2 lbs small russet potatoes, rinsed and dried, each cut into eight wedges
  • Olive oil for brushing
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup pitted Kalamata olives, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbs Italian parsley
  • 4 oz feta cheese, crumbled

Directions

  • To make the Lemon-Garlic Drizzle, mash the minced garlic and salt with a fork in a bowl until the garlic makes a paste. Whisk in the lemon juice, then the olive oil; set aside.
  • Arrange wedges on a baking sheet. Brush with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Heat the grill to medium-hot. Transfer the wedges to the grill rack. Close the grill lid. After 3 to 4 minutes, open the lid and turn the potatoes. Close the lid again and repeat the process for 12 to 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork. As the potatoes cook, remove them with tongs and return them to the baking sheet.
  • To serve, transfer the potatoes to a platter. Drizzle with the Lemon-Garlic Drizzle and sprinkle with feta, olives, and parsley.
