New Classic Potato Salad


You can’t have barbecue without Potato Salad. I love just a basic creamy potato salad, nothing fancy. Every now and then I do change it up to give Classic Potato Salad a nice twist. This recipe is a twist on Classic Potato Salad. I usually add Blue Cheese (totally delicious) but omitted this time around for the sake of my DH. If you do decide to add Blue Cheese do so according to your tastes and fold in at the end of the recipe. The cheese goes perfect with the bacon, adding such a rich flavor to the potato salad!

Delicious Rating: This is a potato salad is an easy recipe for the beginner, no crazy steps or culinary processes. It is by far my favorite potato salad recipe, seriously delicious. I make it anytime there is a BBQ and baked beans. I just love how the baked bean sauce touches the potato salad…yummy combination!


New Classic Potato Salad
Recipe type: Side Dish
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Yields: 4-6 Side Dishes
Great with a summer barbecue meal.
  • 4 lbs of potatoes, skinned and cooked until tender, chopped
  • 10 strips of bacon, cut into little pieces
  • 1 large red onion, finely diced
  • ¼ cup white wine vinegar
  • ¼ cup of olive oil
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 4 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
  • 2 stalks of celery, diced
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  1. In a large bowl combine onion, with vinegar, olive oil, and sugar.
  2. Let sit for 10 minutes.
  3. Add in celery, bacon and potatoes.
  4. Fold in sour cream, mayonnaise, and eggs.
  5. Salt & pepper to taste.
  6. Chill for 1 hour minimum.

Combining the onion and sugar and vinegar and letting them sit really infuses the depth of the potato salad. The sharpness of the vinegar is cut but still is able to give off a great flavor.

I always will make ahead the day before to have it super chilled and set to serve.
