Not only are the potatoes in this easy summer salad grilled, but the scallions in the tangy, spicy dressing are grilled, too.

  1. 1 1/2 pounds fingerling potatoes
  2. Kosher salt
  3. 10 scallions, trimmed
  4. 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
  5. Ground black pepper
  6. 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  7. 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  8. Piment d’Espelette (see Note)
  9. 1 small jalapeño, stemmed, seeded and thinly sliced
  1. In a large saucepan, cover the potatoes with water and bring to a boil. Add a generous pinch of salt and simmer over moderate heat until just tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and let cool slightly, then halve lengthwise.
  2. Meanwhile, light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Brush the scallions with oil and season with salt and black pepper. Grill over high heat, turning, until lightly charred, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate, cover with plastic wrap and let steam for 10 minutes. Cut the scallions into 1-inch lengths.
  3. Brush the potatoes with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill cut side down over high heat until lightly charred, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk the 1/3 cup of olive oil with the vinegar and lemon juice. Add the scallions and potatoes and toss well. Season with salt and piment d’Espelette and toss again. Scatter the jalapeño slices on top, garnish with a large pinch of piment d’Espelette and serve warm or at room temperature.
Make Ahead Piment d’Espelette, a mildly spicy ground red pepper from the Basque region of France, is available at specialty food shops and lepicerie.com.
