    Red Hook's Note:

    This is just PERFECT. A different take on a classic that just makes so much sense. I took a few recipes, mushed them together, an tweaked them to come up with this salad that fits my family perfectly. I hope you enjoy it!

    1. 1
      1. Cut the potatoes (with skins attached, gotta love the extra vitamins) into bite sized pieces and get them boiling in water without salt.
    2. 2
      2. "Fake" caramelize the onions by sweating them over medium heat with the butter and brown sugar. This takes about 20-30 minutes.
    3. 3
      3. Cut the bacon into little pieces and fry them up. Use the cheap bacon, it doesn't really matter here. I take a package and cut the whole thing in half and use that. You want them all browned but not too crunchy. Drain them on a paper towel.
    4. 4
      4. By the time 2 and 3 are done, the potatoes should be ready. Don't let them get mushy. You want them firm enough to stay together when you pierce them with the fork.
    5. 5
      5. Mix the potatoes, onions, and bacon. Yum.
    6. 6
      6. Let these three things cool.
    7. 7
      7. Mix the remaining ingredients well, leaving extra chives out for garnish. I use wild chives when they are available because they are free, grow like weeds, and are easy to distinguish. The measurements are approximate. This dish rocks. You can leave out the chives but you are doing yourself a great disservice. Make sure you use fresh rosemary and chop it finely. The dried stuff will not do so well in this dish unless you let it sit for at least a day or two before eating.
    8. 8
      8. Gently stir in about half of the dressing. You want to be sure to not overdo it on the dressing, so I start with half and add as needed. Just go with what's right for you.
    9. 9
      9. Let it chill for an hour at least for the flavors to marry. And say yum again.

      This salad was a huge hit at our SFGiants Opening Day Party! I doubled the dressing; otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Next time I think I'll caramelize two onions since they were soooo good!

      We loved this great potato salad! I'm not a fan of chives to I did leave them out, otherwise made just as directed. The caramelized onions were so good with the bacon and the dressing was a perfect fit. Really enjoyed this - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for Fall PAC 2012
