Chipotle Bacon Potato Salad #SundaySupper

Hi Everyone,

Today for #SundaySupper we teamed up with Idaho® potatoes to bring you a variety of different kind of potato salads.  To me a summer picnic is not the same unless you have a delicious, creamy, potato salad to side with your hot dogs and hamburgers.  So today I am bringing one of my newest creations and I have to admit I think it is one of the best potato salads I have ever had, it is my Chipotle Bacon Potato Salad.

This potato salad has is all, Idaho® potatoes, greek yogurt, mayonnaise, chipotle peppers and bacon. After all everything is better with bacon! The potato salad is creamy, thick, a little bit healthier then the average potato salad and has just enough heat from the chipotle peppers with crunchy little bits of bacon. It is amazing! I was told by a few that it is the best potato salad they ever had. Score!!

I wanted to share with you safety tips for potato salad. After all anytime you’re using mayonnaise and greek yogurt in potato salad you should take precautions,especially if you’re serving this outside.

  • Use commercial mayonnaise instead of making from scratch as the egg ingredient has been pasteurized and the additional lemon or white vinegar is acidic and has quite a bit of salt. All these ingredients help when paired with a low acid food such as potatoes.
  • Raw eggs are a possible safety hazard when left out, and can develop salmonella bacteria when left at room temperature. If adding sliced eggs, make sure they are hard boiled and therefore fully cooked.
  • I was always taught, hot food hot and cold food cold (and from my mentor when running a food service operation “get the money in the bank”). These temp guidelines are important in warm weather, but also remember to start with clean utensils, bowls and ingredients with no cross contamination, especially from the cutting board when chopping the potatoes.
  • Once the salad is finished being prepared, chill in the refrigerator for several hours, four is ideal.
  • Pre-chill the cooler for the potato salad with cold water or ice before dumping and adding in the finished salad.
  • Bring along a larger bowl and make a nest of ice to place the bowl of potato salad into, keep it covered until service and remove once the buffet line has gone through (you can always place it out later for seconds). Also, it is very important to keep the potato salad out of direct sun light.

All of this information along with freezing potato salad and tips on making potato salad call all be found on the Idaho® potatoes website. Check it out for more information
