Smokin’ Redskin Potato Salad

Smokin Potato Salad 051

~ Mary ~

The most amazing potato salad you will ever have! Bacon, green onions and lite mayo mixed in with smoky red skin potatoes. This one is either for serving up at the family reunion (to impress the heck out of the kinfolk), or, to hoard all for yourself.

Smokin’ Redskin Potato Salad
Fill large sauce pan with 2 quarts of water and add:
4 Tbsp Liquid Smoke
1 tsp Kosher Salt
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
18 -20 Red New Potatoes – Cut in bite-size pieces

Bring to boil. Turn down heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes until fork tender – NOT MUSHY! Drain immediately and run under cold water until steam goes away. Put in fridge and cool.
In large mixing bowl combine

1 Cup Mayonnaise
1 Cup Chopped Green Onions
½ Cup Pre-cooked Crumbled Bacon
½ tsp – 1 tsp Cracked Black Pepper
½ tsp – 1 tsp Crushed Red Pepper

Mix in cooled potatoes, refrigerate until cool, and serve.
Even better if you make salad a day ahead of time and let sit.
