Grilled Potato Wedges with Lemon Vinaigrette

As promised on Wednesday... here is a fantastic little twist to your every day grilled potato wedge.  The simple lemon vinaigrette adds so much flavor and Oomph! to these potatoes... it's almost crazy how easy it is!!  Honestly, this vinaigrette would be great on a salad or piece of chicken or even a piece of fish.  Versatility at it's finest :)

Printable Recipe 
Ingredients:
1/3 cup olive oil
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 Tablespoons fresh parsley, minced
2 Russet Potatoes, cut into wedges
salt and pepper

Directions:
Place the cut potatoes in a large microwave-safe bowl and add 1 tablespoon of water.  Cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 2 minutes.  Carefully remove the bowl and shake the potatoes around.   Continue cooking another 2 minutes, or until the potatoes are just barely fork tender.

In a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk together all the remaining ingredients.  Season with salt and pepper to taste and set aside.

Preheat grill to 375 degrees F.  Clean and oil grill grates.  Place the potatoes directly over the fire and grill about 4-5 minutes per side or until they are cooked through and golden, crispy on the outside.  Carefully remove from the grill.  Place on plate and drizzle with vinaigrette, or use vinaigrette as a dipping sauce.  Either way... enjoy!

Oh my. Do they keep well enough to send through the mail? I don't suppose you could get them here in time for dinner tonight.

ok, this is weird. I have a little left over dressing in the fridge that I made the other day and the recipe is almost identical to this one. Plus I was just wondering how I was going to flavor some potato wedges for Sunday breakfast. (insert twilight zone music here).

So happy to see your method for cooking your potatoes before grilling. This vinaigrette sound so good, I need to try it because I am always looking for ways to dress up roasted/grilled potatoes.

I really like the idea of sauce on grilled potatoes.
