Did not see this recipe anywhere on Allrecipes and, as it's been a huge favorite here for years, I decided to post it. Dazzling with a nice steak! Serve year round. Turkey bacon and fat-free mayo may be substituted, though keep in mind that both will sacrifice a bit of taste. :)

  • Place the bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on paper towels. Crumble bacon when cool.

  • Stir mayonnaise, crumbled bacon, cucumber, red onion, 3 chopped eggs, celery, 1/2 cup parsley, and 1 tablespoon paprika into the potatoes until thoroughly combined. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Garnish salad with slices of hard-cooked egg, 3 sprigs of fresh parsley, and a pinch of paprika.

Very nice. Certainly suitable for your own additions or tinkering but it's pleasant just as is...except it needed some seasoning. I seasoned it to taste with Jane's Krazy Mixed-Up Salt and some Lemon Pepper Seasoning. The paprika wasn't discernible in terms of taste all that much but it did give the potato salad an interesting shot of color. At first I thought it could use a splash of color - radishes maybe or grape tomatoes but as this recipe's first reviewer I wanted to stay relatively true to the recipe. As it turns out I kind of liked the fresh "green" look to the salad. As for measurements I just winged it sinced it's hard to know the exact volume of a red potato. Loved the addition of the bacon - I dare ask who wouldn't? Read More

Pretty good potato salad but it needed a bit more ingredients to kick it past bland. I added dill a bit of brown mustard and pickle relish to make it more palatable. Pretty good and we all enjoyed it as a side for our Memorial Day bbq. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This was easy & excellent! Even my picky boys ate it. The only adjustment I did was add fresh dill, as we have it growing in our garden. When I make it again, I will probably add some mustard to spice it up a bit. But it's so good, I highly recommend giving it a try! Read More
