There is nothing like bacon to get people excited about making a recipe. So why not add it to potato salad? Bacon and Potato Salad. We made this dish in our Main Dish Salads Cooking Class and it was a huge hit. As we head into the Labor Day weekend, why not make one last summer potato salad and add a little comfort food with it. What I love about this potato salad is it requires no peeling of potatoes, making it true Fresh Food in a Flash.
I halved and boiled up these beautiful Star Spangled Spuds that Frieda’s Produce gave to me that are red, white and blue. You can use any small potatoes. Just cut them into bite sized, similar sized pieces before cooking. No peeling required.
Fry up some bacon, drain on paper towels and crumble.
Mix up an easy dressing with fresh dill and in only 25 minutes, you will have a fabulous fresh salad that everyone is going to love. If you have some vegetarian friends, just pull out some of the potato salad for them before you mix in the bacon. That means more bacon for you!
Bacon and Potato Salad is another Fresh Food in a Flash recipe – fast, fresh and delicious.
