  • 900g small everyday potatoes, halved
  • 6 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 3 red onions, peeled but left whole and sliced into finger-thick slices
  • 2 handfuls flat-leaf parsley leaves, very roughly chopped


  1. Boil the potatoes in a large pan of salted water for about 10 mins until just cooked. In a large bowl, stir the oil and vinegar together with some salt and pepper. While the barbecue is still hot, grill the onion slices for 5 mins on each side until lightly charred. Toss the hot onions, separating them into rings, in the dressing.

  2. Toss the potatoes in a small drizzle of oil and grill on the barbecue, cut side down, for about 5 mins until browned, then toss with the onions. Mix in the parsley and serve.
