Honey Mustard Bacon Potato Salad

bacon potato saladAre you a fan of bacon, potatoes and honey mustard? Here’s a delicious recipe for potato salad using baby, red skin potatoes topped with honey mustard dressing and lots of crispy bacon.

Bacon Honey Mustard Potato Salad
Tip: if you like your bacon a bit crisp, place the bacon bits on a cookie sheet and bake in the oven or toaster oven, at around 400 degrees, for a few minutes. Watch closely, it doesn’t take very long for the tiny pieces of bacon bits to crisp up.

The honey mustard dressing I used in this recipe is fat free, but use whatever brand of honey mustard dressing you prefer. I like to jazz up the dressing a bit by adding some grainy stone ground mustard and little bit of honey. The salt that is called for in this recipe is only used to flavor the potatoes as they are cooking in the boiling water. You may omit the salt if desired.

A bit of fresh herb would be a nice addition to the potato salad. Add one to two tablespoons of chopped fresh parsley, dill or fennel, if desired.
