Ready In:


  • 7 cups red potatoes, sliced into disks
  • 12 cup vinaigrette or 1/2 cup Italian salad dressing
  • 12 cup sour cream
  • 12 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons horseradish
  • 3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 3 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
  • 3 green onions, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon salt and pepper (to taste)


  • Slice the unpeeled potatoes into disks.
  • Cook the sliced potatoes in slightly salted water until just barely tender then rinse and drain them.
  • Put them in a bowl while still hot and pour the ½ cup of vinaigrette or Italian salad dressing over them. The heat helps the potatoes to absorb the flavor of the dressing better.
  • Let the potatoes marinate in the refrigerator for about two hours, then lift them out of the dressing.
  • In another bowl, blend together the ½ cup of sour cream, the ½ cup of mayonnaise, the 2 teaspoons of horseradish, the 3 crumbled slices of bacon, the 3 tablespoons of pickle relish, the 3 chopped green onions, the 2 tablespoons of chopped dill and the salt and pepper to taste.
  • Blend all of these ingredients together and then fold in the potatoes, refrigerate for at least two hours to chill and serve.

  1. Made it for a cook-out over the weekend. It was a big hit even with the picky kids. No leftovers - Delish!
  2. Here I thought I created something new.....went to post only to find this wonderful recipe already here! Mine had some small differences but not enough to warrant another recipe. I used new white potatoes boiled in their skins and then peeled. I used more creamed horseradish (bottled), less pickle relish, and no bacon. I added the sour cream because it was too dry for me without it. After it was chilled, I added fresh ground pepper. I doubt if I will ever make potato salad without horseradish now! Thanks for posting!
