Ingredients

  • 6 each small-medium red, white, and blue potatoes (from Sprouts Baby Medley Potatoes bags) , about 2 1/2 total pounds
  • 3 cloves garlic , minced
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 12 bamboo or stainless steel skewers
  • Ranch dressing , to serve

Instructions

  1. If using bamboo skewers, soak in water 30 minutes before grilling.
  2. In a large plastic freezer storage bag, combine garlic, lemon juice, salt, and olive oil. Wash potatoes and cut in half. Add to garlic-olive oil mixture and marinade 15 minutes, up to an hour.
  3. After marinading, thread potato halves onto skewers in a red, white, and blue pattern, with 1 of each color potato per skewer, skin sides all facing the same direction.
  4. Preheat grill at medium heat, about 450º F. Remove skewers from marinade and place on grill, cut side down. Grill 15-20 minutes or until fork-tender, flipping to skin side down in the last 5 or so minutes. Don’t grill them skin side down too long, or you’ll lose the patriotic color! Remove from heat and serve with ranch dressing.

Recipe Notes

Make sure you don't grill the potatoes skin-side down for too long, or the red, white, and blue colors will lessen in vibrancy.
