Warm Potato Salad

This Warm Potato Salad is SO delicious.  Made with roasted baby potatoes, and tossed with homemade bacon bits and a creamy dressing.  Served warm and just so tasty.

A salad you ask?  But summer is over.  Nah.  Salads are fun all year round!  Ok, maybe not fun, but yummy no? Especially warm potato salad.  I honestly could eat this dish once a week…serve it up alongside a roasted chicken and you’re golden.  It’s roasting the potatoes first that makes this salad so good…or maybe it’s the cooked onions (yum), oh I love the pickles too…don’t forget the bacon!  Drooling yet?

Warm Potato Salad

I first had this delectable salad while over for dinner at my friend Lori’s house (Hi Lori!), and I seriously couldn’t stop eating it.  It’s so good.  Bacon-y, creamy, warm and just delicious.  And because it’s warm it’s great served as a side dish, because let’s just be honest…potato salads…are they really even a salad?  I mean really?  They’re more of a side dish than a salad right?


Anyway here’s the recipe…trust me, you’re going to want to try it!  So good.

This Warm Potato Salad is SO delicious.  Made with roasted baby potatoes, and tossed with homemade bacon bits and a creamy dressing.  Served warm and just so tasty.


  • 1 1/22 lbs potatoes (quartered (I use baby potatoes and cut them in half)))
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp butter
  • 1 large chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream or Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp Tabasco sauce
  • salt & fresh ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped dill pickles (pickles cut into quarters)
  • 3 green onions (sliced)
  • 46 pieces of cooked and crumbled bacon


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Toss the potatoes in the olive oil and bake in the oven for about 25 minutes, or until the potatoes are cooked and golden in colour.
  3. In the mean time, in a frying pan cook the chopped onion in 2 tsp butter, until soft and golden. Set aside.
  4. Combine the ingredients for the dressing: sour cream, mustard, Tabasco, salt and pepper.
  5. When the potatoes are done cooking and still warm, stir in the onions, pickles, green onions, bacon and dressing.
  6. Serve warm or at room temperature.
