The great thing about this salad is that not only does it taste really good, you can serve it cold, room temperature or warm it up. I made it for Sunday dinner and served it with Garlic Pork Loin Roast – easy and very good dinner!
- About 2 lbs. of small red or gold potatoes, unpeeled
- 2 teaspoons of salt
- 1/2 cup of finely chopped red onion
- 4 tablespoons of vegetable or olive oil
- 1/4 cup of beer (lager)
- 2 tablespoons of vinegar
- 2 teaspoons of Dijon mustard
- 3 tablespoons (or more if you like bacon) of bacon bits
- Salt and pepper to taste
I used Brick Brewery Laker Lager – the light colour and taste was just right to enhance the flavour of this salad
- Cover potatoes with water by about 2 inches in a large pot.
- Add salt and bring to a boil
- Reduce heat and simmer for 25-30 minutes or until they can be easily pierced with a knife
- Drain and let cool until you can handle them
- Do not peel
- Cut potatoes into about 1 inch pieces and add onion
- While waiting for potatoes to cool. combine oil, beer, vinegar and mustard.
- Pour the dressing over potatoes
- Add bacon nits, salt and pepper and gently stir to mix
- Serve warm, room temperature or cold
