Maple Bacon Potato Salad with Dill

Maple Bacon Potato Salad with DillCan you believe we are almost officially into summer? Bring on Memorial Day weekend, lots of picnics and of course – potato salad! In general I am not a fan of mayonnaise based potato salads, they can be a bit much. This potato salad offers a lighter way to go and packs a lot of flavor. I use turkey bacon, plenty of fresh dill and real maple syrup.

I will be in Arizona for Memorial Day weekend and am planning on coming back with a tan and will be feeling well rested. Maple Bacon Potato Salad with Dill RecipeI also decided dill just might be an underrated herb. I love the flavor dill brings to this side dish.

Prep time
Total time
 
A twist on traditional potato salad with maple syrup, bacon and fresh dill.
Serves: 6 servings
Ingredients
  • 6 cups potatoes (any variety), diced. - About 3 large potatoes
  • 1 12 ounce package turkey bacon (can substitute regular bacon)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ cup real maple syrup
  • ¼ cup fresh dill, chopped into pieces
  • 1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
Instructions
  1. Add your potatoes to a large pot with water and bring to a boil, cooking for about 10 minutes until the potatoes are tender.
  2. While the potatoes are cooking, tend to your bacon. I like to cook mine in the oven because it's easy and mess free (especially with turkey bacon). Bake for about 30 minutes on 300 - flipping the bacon halfway through.
  3. Now your potatoes should be ready to be drained, place them in a large bowl and pop them in the fridge to cool.
  4. Pat any excess grease off the bacon and cut it into small ½ inch pieces.
  5. Toss the bacon in the bowl with the potatoes.
  6. Once the potatoes are cooled (give them at least two hours in the fridge) add in the remaining ingredients; olive oil, maple syrup, dill, black pepper, garlic powder and salt.
  7. Stir well and refrigerate until serving.
