Grilled Sausage & Potatoes with Mixed Greens

Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 28 mins
Total Time 43 mins
Servings 4 servings


  • 3/4 lb. potatoes
  • 4 your favorite sausages
  • 6 sweet mini peppers or 2 bell peppers
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp ground oregano
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground pepper
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes stemmed & halved
  • 4 cups spring lettuce mix


  • 1 tbsp + 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 plums diced
  • 6 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp agave nectar or honey
  • salt & pepper to taste



  • Place all of the dressing ingredients in a food processor & blend until completely mixed.


  • Place the potatoes in a large saucepan. Cover with cold water, set over high heat and bring to a boil. Boil until the potatoes are just tender when pierced with a fork-15 to 18 minutes. Drain and let rest until cool enough to handle.
  • Preheat the grill to medium-high and lightly brush with oil.
  • Place the peppers on the grill & turn when the skin on the bottom is charred & blistery-about 5 minutes each side. Remove from the grill & place in a damp cloth or paper towel. Let sit for a minute, then rub off the skin & remove the stems & seeds.
  • Meanwhile, cut the potatoes in half lengthwise. Place in a bowl and toss with the olive oil, oregano, salt and pepper.
  • Grill the potatoes until they have golden brown grill marks, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
  • Pierce the sausages in a few places. Cook on the grill until browned and heated through, turning occasionally, 7 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and cut each sausage into 6 pieces.
  • Using 4 plates, divide the spring lettuce mix, sausages, peppers & potatoes between the 4 plates.
  • Drizzle each salad with dressing. Serve.
