As things go, I wanted to continue with doing something different, this time a creamy potato salad with bacon side dish for your barbeque. Something I’m sure you, your friends and family will really enjoy the next time they come around.
For this dish, I gather a few pounds of small red new potatoes, a few slices of bacon, quarter cup sour cream, wine vinegar, thinly sliced stalks celery, fresh flat-leaf parsley, fresh tarragon, mayonnaise, salt and black pepper. I let the potatoes boil in a little water and add a teaspoonful salt. At this junction, reduce the heat, allow potatoes to simmer till they are tender in about 18 minutes. Once ready, drain and run under cold water to cool and cut the potatoes into small pieces. Set the potatoes aside and cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp, paper towel bacon when ready and allow it to break into smaller pieces. Get a large bowl, mix and whisk mayonnaise, sour cream, vinegar, pinch of salt and pepper. Throw in the potatoes add celery and toss to mix it all up. When well mixed, fold the potato mixture in bacon, tarragon and parsley. The best thing about this dish is that it is so simple, yet it has a big impact on the bbq experience. I do enjoy the potato side dish recipes at allrecipes.com.au if you’re feeling adventurous and want something to make your bbq one never to forget.
I hope this recipe works out great in bringing the best flavors from your meat. Surprise your friends and tell them you will whip up something for them in say, 30 minutes, they will be licking their folks, asking for more!
