This salad was a nice change with the roasted potatoes and my husband and I really enjoyed it. I used kosher salt and would drop that down to a 1/4 tsp next time, but otherwise, we really liked it.

This was super yummy. I made minor changes. I tossed the potatoes with 1 tbsp olives oil, sprinkled with salt/pepper/smoked paprika before roasting. Afterwards I added the recommended amounts of salt and pepper, and added more smoked paprika. I also chopped up the egg a bit more like one of the other reviewers. I had a very small leftover bit of green pepper (about two tbsp) in the fridge, so I threw that in, too. Wonderful, simple recipe. A keeper!

chopped up the egg a bit more as we don't like the texture of a whole boiled egg slice in potato salad. Used green onions with tops diced up instead of the whole onion, added dill pickle relish, used a bit less mayonnaise with a bit of spicy brown mustard. pretty good.

Great recipe, I love roasting the potatoes. I added shredded carrot, celery, green pepper for some crunch and deleted the onion, only because I do not like raw onion in a potato salad. Just about a 1/8 cup of each. For the mayonnaise mixture, I added some Dijon mustard, dill relish, and Parmesan cheese all to taste. Honestly, the best potato salad I have ever made.

We really loved this easy recipe! Just a few simple ingredients for the perfect side dish! Will definitely roast the potatoes for our potato salad always now!

We loved this potato salad! Super easy to make! Roasting the potatoes added alot of flavor as did the bacon and hard boiled eggs. Made exactly as written. Perfect side for any cookout potluck. Will definitely make again!

I have been making this for many years. I tweak it with scallions and dill. I often times mix sour cream dill dip(ready made) with some miracle whip. The miracle whip balances the dill flavor with just a touch of sweetness. A short cut is to use steam in bag red potatoes; steaming them less than the recommended time, otherwise they are too soft. Chill them first before cutting.

This sounds like my moma's potato and egg salad. The potatoes were cut small and the eggs were chopped into large pieces . They are then added to the wet ingredients chopped oniion, mayonnaise sweet pickle relish, salt and freshly ground pepper. The crumbled bacon was then added. Smoked paprika and parsley are then sprinkled on top! Refrigerate 1 hour for the flavors to meld together. Enjoy! Sudie York :)

I've made one very similar, but you add onions & sweet bell peppers to the potatoes while roasting. Very good for a change I threw in some green onions when stirring it all together.
