My husband’s family love their potato salad with an oil and vinaigrette dressing, mine love their with good old mayonnaise dressing. Then there comes to choice of what to add – eggs, radishes, pickles, onions? For my potato salad recipe I decided to add kale, bacon and corn. I love Irish Colcannon (recipe here), and decided since kale tastes so yum in Colcannon, why not potato salad. This recipe tastes fantastic warm or cold!
