Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes; drain and cool. Cut each potato lengthwise into 1 inch spears. Place spears in 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. Prepare the marinade by whisking together the white wine vinegar, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Reserve 1 tablespoon and pour the remainder over the potatoes and turn gently to coat. Cover and refrigerate until chilled.
  3. Remove potatoes from refrigerator and bring to room temperature. Arrange potato spears on serving platter.
  4. Core apple and finely chop; add to reserved marinade. Stir in bacon (or ham), olives and onion. Spoon over potatoes and serve.

Looking for some type of potato to go with grilled hamburgers, I found this recipe in my recipe box. Not sure what makes “Spanish” potato salad, but it was good and different. I used Yukon Gold potatoes and omitted the chopped black olives in the dish. This salad does need to marinate for a while. The longer the potatoes sit in the dressing the more flavor it has. I mixed this up in the morning, refrigerated it all day and let come to room temp for about an hour. My family liked the dish, but wasn’t crazy about it at room temp. They did enjoy it much better when I heated the leftovers in the toaster oven and served it as a hot side dish.

The salad was good but not great so I gave it 4 stars. Not sure if I would try this again. -Big Jesse

This was very good. Similar to my mom's German Potato salad. I left out the black olives but I will try them next time. I'm thinking kalamata would be best.

Great potluck dish. Doesn't need the bacon. I recommend cutting the potatoes into 1" cubes and then boiling--easier to cook and eat. I let them marinade overnight then added the olives, apple and onion the next day and served at room temperature.
