Warm Bacon Potato Salad with a Sage Mustard Vinaigrette - Grilling Time Side Dish

Pin It Now!

Peanut Butter and Jelly, Bread and Butter, Captain and Tennile, Ernie Banks and the Cubs... Some things just belong together.

Like Potato Salad and a summer BBQ... Or any excuse really.  I have already posted several potato salads in my "52 Grilling Secret Extras" series.  And I am sure there will be quite a few more.  Seems potatoes can be combined in so many different and tasty ways, they are just going to end up on the table for about any occasion.

This recipe is fantastic.  Perfect way to use some fresh herbs growing in your summer garden.  The whole grain mustard adds a pep and the two colors of potatoes (red and white) and the green herbs add a festive element to any party!  Even, dare I suggest something a little elegant?

Oh... And there's BACON!
