English Pub Potato Salad With Cucumber and Bacon


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. :)

  • 8 red potatoes

  • 6 slices bacon

  • 1 cup mayonnaise

  • 1 cucumber, chopped

  • ½ cup chopped red onion

  • 3 hard-cooked eggs, chopped

  • 1 cup celery, chopped

  • ½ cup chopped fresh parsley

  • 1 tablespoon paprika

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 hard-cooked egg, sliced

  • 3 sprigs fresh parsley, or as desired

  • 1 pinch paprika, for garnish


  1. Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and cool. Chop potatoes and transfer into a large salad bowl.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
