Creamy Potato Salad

I only have 7 ingredients for my creamy potato salad. And I NEVER put pickles or onions in mine. That's just wrong!
Weekday Chef's Creamy Potato Salad with Bacon! 

This is one of my kids' favorite things that I make for BBQ dinners....great for summer picnics too. 

My 7 ingredients are: Potatoes, eggs,  bacon, celery, mustard, mayo, and salad seasoning. These 7 yummy things makes a great potato salad. But don't eat it that often because it is very high in calories and the egg yolks aren't so good for your arteries. But it's great for a special Summer BBQ.
      
I like to use either red, new potatoes, or Yukon Gold potatoes. Both just seem creamier to me.
And of course bacon makes everything a little bit better, now doesn't it? 
If I use the red, new potatoes, I don't peel off the skins, ever. But sometimes I do with the Yukon Gold, if I'm not feeling too lazy.
Potato Salad Ingredients List:
13 to 15 small and medium potatoes cut up into bite size chunks so it fills a big salad bowl
7 eggs (boiled with the potatoes, then chopped up)
1 1/4 cups of good quality mayo
3 Tablespoons regular French's Mustard
4-5 pieces of bacon cooked and crumbled
3-4 stalks of celery finely sliced (I like that bit of crunch)
5-7 shakes (to taste) of Salad Seasoning (about 2 teaspoons)

Seasoning salt and pepper if you need more flavor

Top with a few shakes of parsley flakes
It's hard to find this stuff sometimes, but it MAKES every single salad better, pasta, potato, spinach...I use it a LOT! 

The best potatoes to use are these red, new potatoes. Just leave the skins on! 
Yukon Gold also make great potato salads...leave skins on or peel as you please...I peeled mine for this salad. 


It's a great side dish. And it tastes even better the next day when all the seasonings have melded together as leftovers!
