Grilled New Potato Salad with Bacon and Buttermilk Dressing

Tonight we confirmed that we need a bigger kitchen.  In addition to me making tonight's entry, Kristen made homemade whoopie pies.  I'll let you read about it here.   But between both of us being in the kitchen at the same time, lighting equipment, and an overflowing recycle bin, we barely had room to move.

We picked up some pre-made sliders yesterday and wanted a good side dish to go along with it.  We picked between grilled steak fries and the the potato salad, and it seemed the salad was less effort to make.

Oddly enough, I think the recipe was incomplete.  It called for garlic powder and onion powder, neither of which was in the directions.  So I included it in the buttermilk dressing portion.  Also the directions didn't say anything past halving the potatoes but I ended up mashing them slightly to give it more of a traditional potato salad texture.

No drink tonight - I did have a beer but it was gone before I could photograph it.

Oh, and for those of you more interested in the whoopie pies:

I made too many potatoes I think.  There wasn't enough dressing to hold everything together.  And I think it would've been more flavorful with more dressing.  But we both made something yummy while constantly stepping over each other, which is an accomplishment in and of itself.  =o9
