Bacon Potato Salad

Bacon Potato Salad | The Rose Table

I’m half German, half Irish. There is no amount of potatoes that I can’t take down. I easily cook potatoes five days each week and yet I’ve hardly posted any potato recipes on The Rose Table! I plan on amending that this year.

The recipe could hardly be easier! Once the potatoes have been boiled, this dish comes together in five short minutes. It’s delicious served as a side dish with fish or grilled meats but is also a fantastic addition to a green salad. I like to leave the potatoes whole because they look so beautiful, but you could cut them before tossing it all together if you prefer.

Bacon Potato Salad
Serves 4-6
1.5 lbs potato medley

Lemon vinaigrette (recipe follows)
4 scallions, green and white parts
1/4 cup flat leaf Italian parsley 
2 Tbsp Feta cheese
4 slices thick cut bacon, cooked and crumbled 

Lemon Vinaigrette
Makes 1 1/2 cups
1/4 cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed 
1/4 cup white wine vinaigrette 
2 tsp sugar
Sea salt, freshly ground pepper to taste
1 shake each dried oregano and dried basil 
1 cup olive oil 

  1. Whisk together all ingredients for lemon vinaigrette, finishing with olive oil. Set aside.
  2. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add a generous amount of salt. Boil potatoes in salted water for about 20 minutes or until fork tender.
  3. Drain in a colander in the sink. Cover potatoes with a towel for 10 minutes.
  4. In a large bowl, toss potatoes with 2 Tbsp lemon vinaigrette while still warm. Let cool.
  5. Add crumbled bacon, scallions, parsley, and more vinaigrette as desired. (Note: you will have plenty of vinaigrette leftover. Keep it on the counter for a delicious salad dressing.)
  6. Chill for a couple of hours.
  7. Add Feta cheese before serving.
