During outdoor grilling season, there is lots of focus given to meat on the grill. However, I love focusing on delicious side dishes as well. While Mike mans the grill outside, Sam and I are busy in the kitchen, creating the rest of our meal. I love updating favourite classics plus trying something new.

Easy Spicy Hot or Cold Potato Salad

Potato salad is one of my go to dishes when we BBQ. I decided to update it this weekend using some amazing Gay Lea Gold Premium Sour Cream. We love using sour cream all year, but especially when grilling. I’ll mix a little horse radish with sour cream and use it as a topping for our burgers plus as a dip for our grilled potatoes. Yum!

This weekend, I had Sam help mix up our potato salad.. he was thrilled to help! I decided to add a little spice to it this time and it turned out wonderfully!
