BBQ chorizo potato salad is lip-smacking good: Try the recipe

“If you’ve ever hosted a barbecue, you know that food can sit out for hours with guests going back for seconds and thirds. Since potato salad is one of the best barbecue sides, we created one with a sour cream base instead of mayo so that it could stay out a bit longer,” says Shawn Gavin, CEO and founder of Slofoodgroup. 

GRILLED VEGETABLE SALAD FROM A BBQ LEGEND: TRY THE RECIPE

Note: the recipe has a few tablespoons of mayo but the sour cream base makes it a little heftier. Gavin personally loves pairing this Spanish-style potato salad with cornbread and an iced cold beverage. If you’re a vegetarian or serving diners who don’t eat meat, simply omit the chorizo.
