Jazz up the humble potato into this cheap,easy to prepare,delicious bacon potato salad.

This is a Fresh,creamy salad with a little bit of a tang.The salad can be made even healthier by substituting the mayonnaise for sour cream,however I chose to use a bit of mayonnaise in this recipe because of it’s creamy delicious goodness and also because I just can.

This salad is a perfect side when you are having a barbecue or going out for a picnic as it also keeps well,it can be made in bulk then stored in the refrigerator for up-to 4 days.


4 large red potatoes

1/2 cup natural yogurt

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup vinegar

(You can substitute mayonnaise for sour cream for a more healthy touch)

2 tablespoons dill ween roughly chopped

2 green onions

1 medium sized red onion

Salt&pepper to taste


Thoroughly wash your potatoes with clean running water and chop them up into bite size chunks.

I chose to leave the skin on my potatoes for extra texture and crunch

Bring water to a boil and throw in your potatoes

Boil your potatoes for 10 minutes until cooked,do not overcook the potatoes as we still want them to have a bite and a crunch in the salad,overcooking them will end up making your salad looking like mashed potatoes,you don’t want that.

As the potatoes are cooking chop up your onions and dill,set them aside

In a frying pan crisp up 4 strips of bacon

When brown and crispy,take them out of the pan and roughly chop them up and set aside

When your potatoes are done,drain the water and season with salt and pepper,throw in the dill weed and let them cool down as they absorb the flavours

In a separate bowl,mix in the onions,mayonnaise,yogurt and vinegar

Introduce your bacon into your now cooled down potatoes and toss to mix well

Pour In your mayonnaise yogurt mixture and using a spatula or spoon bring it together

Set this in a refrigerator to chill and it is ready to serve
