This recipe for Italian Potato Salad, mayo free, a starter or side recipe, is simple, delicious and an all time favorite. Perfect for a potluck or a picnic, it’s the salad you’ll always be craving.
I love potato salad in general, but anytime you add bacon to anything, it makes it a thousand times better, so this potato salad is incredible. It’s quick and easy to make, basically all you need to wait for is boiling the potatoes and frying the bacon, the rest is just assembling everything together.
The great thing about this potato salad is that it’s mayo free, so if we’re not counting the bacon, it really is on the healthier side. As much as I love a traditional potato salad, this Italian version is so good.
The bacon can also be replaced with a good Italian salami for a truer Italian salad. I hope you give this recipe a try because it’s perfect for a summer picnic or it’s the perfect salad to bring to a potluck.
