Bacon Potato Salad for your July 4th Celebration!

Potato Salad Like You’ve Never Had
Whether you use white or sweet potatoes,
this dish is a summer favorite.

6 to 8 medium potatoes (about 3 pounds), peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
1/2 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled
6 green onions, chopped
2 celery ribs, finely chopped
2 tablespoons diced pimiento, drained
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
Garnishes: paprika, celery sticks

Cook potatoes in boiling water to cover in a Dutch oven over medium heat 15 to 18 minutes or until tender. Drain and let cool slightly.

Place potatoes in a large bowl. Add bacon, chopped green onions, and next 4 ingredients. Stir together mayonnaise and sour cream until blended. Pour over potato mixture, tossing gently to coat. Cover and chill at least 1 hour. Garnish, if desired.

Makes 6 servings

    I make something similar and add shredded cheddar cheese. I also found mine is best the day it’s made. If it chills too long, it gets dry. Homemade potato salad is the BEST! I posted a recipe on my blog for a warm potato salad that has gotten super reviews when I’ve taken it to picnics.
