Roasted Garlic and Smoked Paprika Potato Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Tinkerbell

This recipe was inspired by and created with the secret ingredients for the RSC #15 contest. Qualifying ingredients were roasted garlic, smoked paprika, spicy brown mustard, thyme and eggs. My family absolutely loved it and were actually horrified to find that I didn't submit this one. :) For roasting garlic please see my Easy Roasted Garlic. This is also great with some cooked and crumbled bacon added in.

A really different and delicious potato salad! I omitted the bacon, and it couldn't have been better. Nice way with leftover roasted potatoes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel and dice potatoes into about 1-inch cubes. Put into large pot of cold water (enough to cover) and bring to a boil. Lower heat to a steady, slow boil and cook until potatoes are fork-tender. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, dice celery and hard boiled eggs into a small dice. Set aside.
  3. Into a large bowl, stir together the minced onion, roasted garlic, sugar, thyme, smoked paprika, salt, spicy brown mustard, cider vinegar and mayo. Stir in reserved celery, eggs and bacon (if using).
  4. Fold in cooked and drained potatoes.
  5. Serve immediately or chill in refrigerator until serving time.
