I was looking for a grilled side dish to accompany the
from Weber's New Real Grilling
that I was making this day. The steak sandwiches were a quick but concentrated cook, where everything happened in under 10 minutes with lots of turning, flipping etc. I couldn't make something where I needed to be actively keeping an eye on the second grill. It needed to be something where it was a long cook where I could pull it off the grill quickly, or where it was make ahead like this dish. The various veggies were grilled and combined with a dressing and were served at room temperature. This was a real tasty potato salad, with great flavor from the grilled veggies and spiciness from 2 sources. There was spiciness from the chorizzo and also from chili powders used in the dressing. Everyone loved the potato salad and took multiple servings. So if you need a relatively easy make ahead side dish, this fits the bill nicely.
