Barbecued Chorizo and Potato Salad

Who doesn't love potato salad? What about an easy Spanish-flavored potato salad to bring your barbecue party together? This great potato salad is made with only a  few ingredients, yet it is packed with so much flavor. Using only boiled potatoes, crunchy celery stalks, grilled chorizo, dill, and a creamy sour cream-based dressing, it makes a great barbecue side dish and a crowd-pleaser. As it is not a mayo-based salad, it can hold up very well outdoors which makes it great for BBQ parties.

This is not your average potato salad, as it is a full-on flavor explosion. The creamy sour cream sauce is so flavorful from the nutmeg, capers, and onions whilst the dill adds a kick of freshness to the meal. The juicy grilled chorizo on top just brings this gluten-free side dish together and transports you right to Spain.
