Warm Tri-Colored Potato Salad With Vinaigrette


I saw a bag of tri-colored potatoes at the grocery and thought
they would be fun to use.  Those purple ones are really beautiful
with their deep, rich color!  And you know, they really don't taste any different!


I've made this warm potato salad a few times this summer already and it's
such a nice change from the traditional mayo-based one.
And..you can make it right before dinner and don't have to worry about
chilling time or keeping it cold on a picnic.


Warm Tri-Colored Potato Salad with Vinaigrette

1 lb. small young potatoes
1/4 c olive oil
2 T lemon juice
1 T dijon mustard
1/4 c vidalia onion, very finely chopped
salt and pepper to taste
2 t sugar
1/4 t dill weed or 2 t fresh dill
6 strips crispy bacon, crumbled.

Cut potatoes into bite-sized pieces and boil in salted water until fork tender.  
Meanwhile, in medium sized bowl, whisk dressing ingredients together. 
 Fold in hot, drained potatoes and bacon.  Serve warm.
I used the precooked bacon and crisped it up in the microwave for 2 minutes.
Yum.

  15. I am totally stumped as to what the green potato is. Here we only have them green if they are exposed to light....are they a special potato?

  17. Sounds yummy and looks that way too. I am a disaster in the kitchen, but now am experimenting actually with simple dishes, thinking; this I can make for my husband when he gets back. Instead of *who cares what I eat on my own*.;))
