Beer Dressed Potato Salad

Beer Dressed Potato Salad created by Kumquat the Cats fr

My SIL made this & I loved it. Getting the recipe was a challenge since Lou is a "cook with what I have on hand" person. I've used my best guess for directions but am fairly confident of the ingredients. Cook time does NOT include boiling the potatoes but DOES include the standing time. Updated to reply to reviews: I always use the beer most commonly found in Texas coolers - Miller Lite. I suggest that you add additional mustard in you use a darker beer. Added salt & Tabasco additions to directions.

    This was exceptionally tasty, and very low fat. I halved the recipe and used a light lager (Michelob) and vegetarian bacon. I played around a bit with the amount of onion and veggie bacon (added more). I wish I had added more dressing too. That may have been my fault as I used large Idaho potatoes instead of smaller red potatoes usually used to make potato salad. BTW, this was not hot at all, I added more hot sauce too. Also there are minor flaws in the instructions (no comment about when the hot sauce and salt should be added - I suggest adding it to dressing before you toss it with the potatoes). This was really tasty though, a great low fat potato salad recipe. We both loved it! Thanks Susie, will make this again.

    this was good, i think i should have tasted the mustard i was going to use with the beer, i used a spicy whole grain brown with a dark belgian ale, because for some reason it didn't taste like what i expected. the taste was still good, the onion and the bacon were excellent! and this was a really easy and different potato salad to make!
