I've found countless recipes for grilled potatoes that called for Olive Oil and Salt and Pepper. That's all tasty and wonderful, but it needs a bit more punch of flavor.

While the garlic adds a classic, friendly taste to the potatoes, the Tarragon adds a modern twist that will change a traditional recipe and add more flavor notes and depth. You'll also notice a bit of White Vinegar in this recipe; this helps add a touch of acidity that's different from citrus. The Garlic, Tarragon, and Vinegar are all designed to go together. Each builds on the other without overpowering other flavors.

When making this recipe, you must use very small potatoes; while you can use large potatoes, they will take much longer to cook. Try to look for New Potatoes in your grocery store; this means the potatoes were picked early.

Yukon Gold Potatoes are perfect for the grill as well. This recipe creates mini-baked potatoes with a hint of smoky flavor. All you need is a little tinfoil to cook them in, and you're set! You don't need a plate; you can peel open the tinfoil, set it on a table, and dig in! This recipe is ideal for summer grilling or cookout.

We know you'll enjoy this fantastic summer recipe, so let's begin cooking!
