  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Whisk olive oil, 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, honey, paprika, garlic, salt, and black pepper together in a large bowl. Stir potatoes, mushrooms, and sweet onion into vinegar mixture; toss to coat. Spread vegetables over prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until potatoes are easily pierced with a fork, 30 to 40 minutes.
  4. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate; crumble bacon.
  5. Transfer potato mixture to a large bowl and toss with bacon, green onions, parsley, and remaining 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar.

  • Cook's Notes:
  • If you can't find baby Yukon Golds, don't sweat it, you can get the regular Yukon Golds and cut them into roughly 1 inch pieces.
  • Swap Ideas - Vinegar: apple cider, red wine, white wine, white balsamic; Bacon: pancetta, crumbled sausage (chorizo); Fresh Herbs: tarragon, basil, dill. You could even cheat and use your favorite vinaigrette dressing, I won't tell! :)

Definitely not my favorite potato recipe. I used red potatoes and yellow onion since that was what I had on hand but followed the spices, oil and vinegar exactly. The potatoes just didn't have enough flavor so I had to add a lot of salt. Otherwise it just tasted like bland potatoes. Maybe a balsamic vinegar reduction would be better? Regardless, this recipe needs a little "jazz-ing" up to make it work. UPDATE 06/18/12 After the potatoes cooled down about a day, they did seem to have pretty good flavor though the balsamic is still not very prominent. I still suggest using a balsamic reduction to really glaze the potatoes.

Was a disaster! Put the mixture in the oven for 30 min and they came out burnt and inetable. Will never make this again.

Delicious! We cooked the potato mixture on the grill, which added a really nice flavor to an already tasty dish. We will make this again.

Very good! Will definitely make again. Used regular button mushrooms and an extra piece of bacon. I wouldn't call this a "salad" at all, but still- pretty darn good!

Best potato salad I've ever had. For me, it comes off the foil better if the foil is sprayed beforehand with olive oil PAM.
