Red Skin Potato Salad

Red Skin Potato Salad

Hello and happy Monday! I had a great, relaxing weekend and I hope you did too. I made a white wine sangria over the weekend, so keep posted for that recipe which will be coming later in the week. I’m feeling excited about the blog and catching up on all of your posts that I missed over the weekend. It’s a good day. Sometimes you need a couple days of not doing anything to recharge your batteries. I made this potato salad last weekend when I had my dad and his girlfriend over for  dinner and it was delicious. I can’t claim it for my own though. This recipe is my aunt’s and she gets asked for it ALL the time. So next time you’re going to a BBQ pot luck, you have a great recipe for a dish you can bring.



  • 5-6 medium/large red skin potatoes cut into bite sized cubes
  • 1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes, diced
  • 2 tablespoons of oil from the sun dried tomatoes
  • 3 sprigs of green onions, sliced
  • Bacon bits (as much or little as you like)
  • 2 parts mayonaise to 1 part sour cream (use this as a guidelines depending on how much you use in total. I like mine a little drier so I used 1 cup mayo and 1/2 cup sour cream but you can add more if you like it creamier)
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinaigrette

  1. Put your potatoes in a pot and add enough water to cover them. Add 1/2 teaspoon of salt and bring to a boil. Decrease heat to medium high until the water is at a gentle boil and continue to cook for about 15 minutes or until they pierce easily with a fork.
  2. Drain your potatoes and put in a bowl. Mash about 1/4 of the potatoes in the bowl (it will make your salad creamier) and then add the remainder of the ingredients.
  3. Mix well.
  4. Eat.

  1. I can’t get red skinned potatoes here so I’m using standard. I’m making this right now for my lunch tomorrow. I’m substituting crushed walnuts for the bacon bits. Ha. Should be interesting. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. This looks delicious and curse you for making me so hungry on a Monday morning but you’re still my #sataincbestie

    So here’s this – I made a note last week to get you my salsa recipe but I’ve made it so much I don’t use the paper any more and couldn’t find it but it basically goes like this:

    1 can of hot Rotel (they do have a “mild” product if you don’t like the heat) (this is your base so you don’t have to use water) (or puree anything)

    1 hand diced tomato

    1/2 hand diced white onion

    1 or 2 hand diced fresh jalapenos (this is also for taste, those seeds will fire up the mix as it sits)

    1/4 cup hand diced cilantro

    1 TBSP diced garlic (fresh or jarred)

    1/2 fresh squeezed lemon juice (or bottled. maybe a TBSP or so)

    salt to taste

    mix it up and let it sit for a little bit

      1. I hope you like it!!! I like this the best because you don’t have to blend anything and get everything all foamy – know what I mean?? Of course you can post it – that would make me incredibly happy : )
