I have to confess: while I am a huge fan of the kind of salads that are full of greens and beautiful rainbows of yummy fruits and veggies and nuts, I have a soft spot in my heart for the salads that my mind says “pish posh, this isn’t really a boring salad! This is a delicious bowl of bad-for-you goodness! Eat, EAT!”
Macaroni salad, pasta salad, potato salad… you know the kind I’m talkin’ about.
Recently, I made this delicious baby potato salad with bacon for a family BBQ.
It has bacon. Nuff said.
This is a great salad for picnics, parties, or Sunday night family suppers. It’s actually on the lighter side of potato salads, and as a bonus, it’s insanely fantastic to saute and serve up with breakfast the next day.
Baby Potato Salad with Bacon
Recipe amended from Fine Cooking
If you have leftovers, definitely save them, because you can make them into a fabulous hearty potato dish for the next morning!
Simply add some oil to a saute pan, add the leftover baby potato salad with bacon, and toss until thoroughly and evenly heated.
I like my morning potatoes crispy on the outside, so I let them cook up until the outside of the potatoes get a nice crispness to them, which takes about 7-10 minutes over medium heat.
Oh my word. SO GOOD. Total Make Once, Eat Twice food BLISS!
