How to Make Grilled New Potatoes with Lemon-Garlic Aioli
- In a large pot of salted water, boil potatoes until just thoroughly cooked, but not completely soft, 10 - 15 minutes depending on size. Test by piercing a potato with a thin skewer; when the skewer meats some resistance but can slide all the way through, the potatoes are ready. Drain potatoes immediately and set aside until cool enough to handle.
- Combine mayonnaise, garlic, lemon juice, lemon rind, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper in a blender; blend until smooth.
- Heat grill to high.
- Cut potatoes in half, brush the cut sides with oil, and season with remaining 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Grill potatoes cut side down until golden brown and just thoroughly cooked, 2 - 3 minutes.
- Place potatoes on a platter, drizzle with the aioli and sprinkle with chives.
