Potato salad is THE essential side for any family BBQ. I’m not sure how it is with your family, but our potato family recipe goes back decades and generations. The same ingredient, same portions and the same results, perfectly cream potato salad to accompany your grilled deliciousness! But what happens if you…want to try a NEW recipe?!? Will you be the laughing stock of your family or the new hero who changed up the game? Well I’m not one to take risks, haha but this grilled red potato salad is already crowd approved and will basically knock your socks off. With a few specialty ingredients from your local Cost Plus World Market this red potato salad will be your new favorite.
I started off by picking up a few ingredients from my local Cost Plus World Market. If your looking for some unique items to add to your recipes I would suggest taking a little time to browse their food market for some fun stuff!
To start with this recipe I chopped up about 2lb of red potatoes into squares and tossed them with black pepper, salt, Old Bay seasoning and olive oil. Then I baked them on high at 450 degrees for about 30 minutes.
After the potatoes with done, I set aside about 1/2 of them for grilling! This gives the potato salad a nice smokey flavor that I love! Just simply move 1/2 of them onto a grilling sheet like this one from World Market and grill for about 15 minutes on medium heat. Remove and let them cool!
While the potatoes are cooling a bit, you can get started on the dressing! The secret sauce to this recipe is using a combo of salad cream and mayo! Salad cream is a very european condiment that is hard to come across in the states and has more vinegar then oil, making it less stable than mayo! So it’s perfect for something a bit more smooth and creamy! Plus I like the taste.
In a small bowl add the following:
The Slap Ya Mama seasoning is really up to you! If you don’t like spicy food then you can skip it, but if you do, then kick it up a notch! Set the dressing aside! Can we just talk about how cute these measuring cups are! They even have a matching set of teaspoons to go along with them!
One of my favorite parts of this recipe is the bacon bits! To my surprise Cost Plus World Market has this delicious uncured applewood smoked bacon and it’s fully cooked! So all you need to do is warm it up on the stove top under medium heat and you will get some delicious crispy bacon! Cut it up using a good chef’s knife along with your red onions and boiled eggs!
Once that’s done it’s time to assemble the salad! Pour all your baked and grilled potatoes into a bowl. This one features a beautiful tie-dye interior that is perfect for your summer crowd! Then add your chopped ingredients, and your dressing!
Give it a great toss and mix!
Sprinkle a healthy amount of smoked paprika for that final pop of color and flavor. It’s also good to know that this potato salad is actually BEST when served warm! So don’t be afraid to dig in right away!
