Potato Salad With Mustard Dressing and Bacon

This is not your typical potato salad. This makes a lot, but it can be easily reduced. It is also just as good, if not better the next day. This will make a wet salad. If you prefer a drier potato salad increase the amount of potatoes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Whisk mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar and garlic in medium bowl to blend.
  2. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Cover, chill.
  4. Cook bacon in large skillet until crisp.
  5. Drain on paper towels.
  6. Crumble.
  7. Boil potatoes in large pot until just tender.
  8. Drain and transfer to a large bowl.
  9. Cool for 15 minutes or so.
  10. Mix bacon, celery, green and red onions, eggs and dressing into potatoes.
  11. Season with additional salt and pepper if needed.
  12. Chill.
  13. Note: I usually hold back about ¾ cup of the dressing to toss with salad just before serving.
  14. While chilling the potatoes soak up a good bit of the dressing and if not careful it can become dry. If this happens just moisten with a small amount of milk and stir to encorporate.

OMG!!! This is now going to be the ONLY potato salad I'm ever going to make!! Just delicious! The only change I made is to mash 2 of the eggs (didn't hard boil them completely so there was runny yolks) and added them to the dressing before mixing together. I also kept a little dressing to add just before serving, as I prefer a "wetter" potato salad. YUM YUM !!!

This was really good and much easier to make than my normal potato salad. I left out the hard boiled eggs, DH won't eat them.
