Potato and Bacon Salad

Next weekend, we’re going to a pot luck dinner, and we might take this tasty potato salad. It’s delicious, even if it’s a little high in fat, thanks to the bacon. I like to make this with red potatoes, for a nice touch of colour.

Potato Salad With Bacon

  • 1-1/2 lbs new potatoes
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp dried dill
  1. In large pot, cover potatoes with water.
  2. Add 1 tsp salt, and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes
  3. Drain, and run under cold water until cool.
  4. Cut potatoes into quarters.
  5. Meanwhile, cook bacon in skillet over medium high heat, until crispy, about 6 minutes.
  6. Transfer bacon to paper towels to drain.
  7. When cooled, crumble bacon.
  8. In large bowl, whisk oil, vinegar, mustard, 3/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper.
  9. Toss dressing with potatoes, bacon and dill.

Note: Salad can be prepared 1 day ahead, then add the bacon just before serving.

    This belongs in Mike’s blog. Or it would if you changed 4 slices of bacon to 4 pounds.
