This is a super easy and light tasting salad for a hot summer night or picnic.
- 6 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
- 4 cups cooked potatoes, cubed
- 1⁄2 cup low-fat Italian salad dressing
- 4 -6 green onions, diced
- 1⁄2 cup chopped celery
- 1⁄2 cup parmesan cheese
- Mix all together and toss lightly in salad bowl.
- Cool to room temperature, cover and refrigerate.
As advertised, this is lighter and, dare I say, tastier than your normal potato salad. I may add extra bacon next time, to fatten it up a bit, as is my style, but it doesn't really need it.
Oh, I thought this salad was wonderful. You are right, it does have a lighter taste than those made with mayonnaise. I used an extra-zesty lowfat Italian dressing and the flavor was good. We are greatful for something different because we get tired of the same old potato salad. Thanks.
Very delicious salad indeed! I used thick sliced bacon cooked crispy then broken into pieces. I used 5 green onions and Ken's dressing. I used a potato peeler to get thin slices of parmesan cheese to add to the salad. Worked great! This recipe is sure to please. Flavors are great and it's something different to try. Loved it! Thank you Kate for this recipe!
