Oven Roasted Potato Salad with Bacon

While I do like potato salad I never make it because I'm not a huge fan of the heavy mayo filled kind that you can get in a tub at your local deli counter. I wanted to try something different and I thought why not make a potato salad with a vinaigrette and roasted potatoes? It was delicious. A great way to change up your ordinary potato salad.

Oven Roasted Potato Salad with Bacon

2 pounds red potatoes, quartered
2 tablespoons olive oil
5 slices of bacon, cut into 1" pieces
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 red onion, chopped
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon stone ground mustard
1 stalk green onion, chopped
Pinch of salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 375F. On a baking sheet, toss the potatoes with the olive oil. Roast for 25 minutes or until tip of knife pierces potato easily. Heat a skillet on medium heat. Add the bacon and cook for 2 minutes. Then add in the garlic and the red onion. Saute for an additional 3 minutes until the bacon is crisp. In a large bowl, whisk together the red wine vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper. Stir in the bacon, garlic and onions, including all of the bacon drippings. Add in the roasted potatoes and the green onions. Toss gently and serve immediately
