This was pretty and pretty darn good! I made several changes. (The 5 stars are reflective of my changes.) We dislike mayo and all its varients, so my version was made with greek yogurt and sour cream. I made my sauce up separately and found it a bit bland, so I also added dijon mustard and regular, a touch of balsmic vinegar, a bit of brown sugar (1/4 cup or so), and paprika. I also used more bacon than this called for (because who doesn't like bacon?). It was excellent. I sliced extra egg on top, and sprinked it with paprika, extra bacon and peas. It was very pretty. Wish I'd taken a picture! I served it to 6 adults and 6 kids. Even the two who "hate" potato salads loved it. It made enough to feed everyone as a side to burgers (with extra helpings) and we had enough leftover to feed my family of 4 as a side with lunch the next day. Read More

It was okay. The peas made it a little too sweet for us. Read More

I questioned the addition of peas in a potato salad but you what? It is really good. I didn't chill it and it was great warm. Save some bacon and a few peas for the garnish. Really tasty. Thanks soupy! Read More

This is delicious! Though I forgot the peas. Easily remedied. I think I wound up with potatoes quite a bit larger than in the recipe even though they're red. I cubed them rather than quartering. I might suggest a change in wording on the recipe though. 2 tablespoons of PREPARED mustard. I picture some poor soul dumping that much dry mustard in there. You wouldn't do that twice! Think I'll add some paprika for color. This recipe is definitely a keeper! Read More

Looking for a potato salad recipe that Hubs would like I had a couple of criteria that had to be there it had to have mayonnaise it had to have (yellow) mustard and it had to have celery (which I added to this recipe because in his mind it isn t potato salad without it). This recipe met that criteria and with the addition of bacon which as the saying goes makes everything better I believed I had it nailed. Not. I liked it I liked it a lot. I didn t know why Hubs wasn t fond of it. His reason never would have occurred to me. Potato salad of this type shouldn t have skin on it. I won t make this again not because it wasn t good but because Hubs didn t like it and I m not a huge fan of potato salad in general. The bottom line? If you like skin-on potato salad this is a solid performer. If you don t like it peel the darn things. Read More

This potato salad is perfect just as written! The whole family loved it. It would be so much easier to find good recipes, based on reviews, if people would review the recipe as written not based on changes they make that ruin the original recipe. ?? Read More

Wow - this is a good potato salad and the entire family loved it! I mixed this up in the morning using half the bacon to allow the flavors to marry. Before serving I added a sprinkle of bacon on the top. I realized after we had eaten the entire bowl that I forgot to add the peas! My extended family all asked for this recipe. I served this with 'Basil Burgers' from AR. Thanks soupy for sharing it is a winner in our house! Read More
