"A tasty alternative to the typical picnic potato salad. It's made with roasted red potatoes, bacon, eggs, green onion, celery, and mayo. Pretty easy to make and you can adjust most ingredients to suit your own personal taste." — IcanCook?

red potatoes, cut into bite-size pieces
olive oil, or as needed
hard-cooked eggs, chopped
chopped green onion
cooked bacon, chopped
salt and ground black pepper to taste
Simple and good. I added some fresh chopped basil but I would think other fresh herbs like dill or cilantro would be great too.
This is one of my most favorite ways to make potato salad. I like to double the amount of bacon and add a few spices to the mayonnaise. Also, when I roast the potatoes, I also sprinkle them with sea salt/fresh ground pepper. The longer this sits, the better it gets!
I made this based on a similar recipe (with lots of reviews) that seems to have disappeared. Anyway, it was very very good with roasted potatoes. I made lots of modifications based on the reviews of the other roasted red potato salad. Instead of green onion I roasted a chopped onion with the potatoes. I also salted and peppered the potatoes before roasting, and tossed them with olive oil and dijon mustard. I used less mayo, to taste, and added sweet relish. I'm not a huge potato salad fan, but I loved this and will make it again.
Just made this tonight. Very good! I did try what another member suggested and put the diced potatoes in a freezer bag & added salt, pepper, olive oil and a little dijon. Mixed everything all together really good, then dumped onto a cookie sheet to roast. Very good recipe! Thanks!
I add a few different things to my version, but the best thing I got from this one is the idea to roast (rather than boil) the potatoes. They don't get mushy or "starchy" that way, and the roasting really gives them a richer flavor. Very tasty.
Wow this was good! I made this for a party I had to watch my 49er's win (whoo hoo) and not only was the game a hit but so was this potato salad! I got so many compliments and I had three people ask for the recipe. I followed the recipe exactly except for one thing. I tossed the potato's in the olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder before roasting. This truly was hit!
Delicious! Everybody liked it. I used turkey bacon.
Made this for a family gathering. Everyone loved it. Made it as written except substituted half of the mayo with light sour cream.
