Roasted Bacon Dijon Potato Salad

Roasted Bacon Dijon Potato Salad

So it’s been way too long since I added a new post to this blog, I apologize, or as my father would have said say mea culpa, mea culpa, mea máxima culpa. It’s Father’s Day as I am writing this and thus the nod to my father and the somewhat German inspired Potato Salad.  My roasted bacon Dijon potato salad was made today by my Stepdaughter for father’s day dinner, what man doesn’t love potatoes and bacon. It has become a new family favorite since I started making it this spring.  The salad is perfect for Florida as it has no mayo or other dairy that can go so badly so quickly here in summer and the tangy sweet flavor pairs nicely with anything coming off the grill. So after my husband spurred me into action I decided this had to get posted before it was Fourth of July and I completely missed getting this shared before the end of summer.  If you love this basic recipe but want to make it a bit more interesting try adding fresh peas, grilled corn or wedges of hard boiled eggs.
