Red Bliss Potato Salad.. got a TNT Recipe?

I am tasked with bringing Red Bliss Potato Salad to a pot luck on Friday.

Want some classic mustard based tater salad? Not a problem.

But Red Bliss? Heck, I had to google to find out those are basically
"new potatoes", LOL!

So, anyone have a good recipe for this style tater salad?

I have been advised it should have "lots of crispy bacon" in it, please.

(This is a request from none other than my wife's Phd advisor, who vaguely remembers a "potato salad from her youth that was called Red Bliss, had lots of bacon and maybe green pepper..."

Halp! My wife's career might hang on a tater salad!!!
(OK, not really, but it makes a good tag line, huh?)

classic: mayo (I prefer M Whip), mustard to taste. Really yellow. Add some chopped celery and hardboiled egg. Maybe some pickle relish. bit of sugar, pepper.
Or
less mustard/more mayo, add celery, and chopped or sliced cucumber, (Wash to take of protective wax, then score the skin with a veg. peeler and slice or dice. Nice if you keep the skins on the potatoes, too). Add some celery seed to the dressing. s&p to taste
Both are great with bacon tossed in at the end. I also love a good German style, made with the hot bacon drippings, cider vinegar type dressing.

red potatoes
green onion
celery
mayonnaise
s&p
apple cider vinegar

Once potatoes are cooked sprinkle with apple cider vinegar and cover for about 15 minutes. Toss everything else together.

I guess you could add bacon and green pepper to this too. The key to this recipe is letting the potatoes soak up the vinegar. Everthing else is to taste. I like to keep things chopped fairly small.

A potato salad memory...tall order to fill!

The potato salad I normally make is much like Wyogal's. The one posted above is totally different and still very good.

GrillingFool - did you do a websearch on "Red Bliss Potato Salad"? Because I just did & was inundated with recipes - most all quite similar. Apparently it IS a very specific type of potato salad that definitely DOES contain bacon, among other things. You apparently can't just add bacon to any old potato salad recipe & call it "Red Bliss Potato Salad". You might want to check some of those out since none of the suggestions here seem to resemble the Red Bliss Potato Salad recipes I saw (no offense to everyone trying to help!).

well that is a hard one. it depends on how much and how many people you will have and/or is needed.

start with these estimates and go from there depending on number of people and your taste.

Red potatoes - washed, unpeeled & cubed, boiled in salted water
start with small potatoes that come in the 1 1/2 lb bags or small loose and shoot for 5 lbs.

Celery - chopped fine
4 or 5 stalks

Scallions - chopped fine, green included
1 bunch

Fresh parsley - chopped fine
1/4 cup appox. start with less and work up to the full 1/4 cup till it looks rite

Mayonnaise
use as much or little of a 32 oz. bottle

Sour cream
start with 8 oz and do same as mayo

White vinegar
1 or 2 Tbls

Remember potatoes don't absorb the dressing like macaroni so keep in mind if you want the finished "wetness" of salad to be dry or soupy and adjust mayo, vinegar and sour cream according to use taste.

Dry mustard
1/8 tsp

Salt and ground black pepper to taste


and you can add as much crispy cooked bacon as you would like!! be creative and make this salad your OWN!!


i hope this helps.
