Warm potatoes, crisp bacon bits, fresh dill, a Dijon vinaigrette and soft boiled eggs? Where has this been my entire life?

Mom would get the classic potato salad from our local grocery store. Loaded with mayo, hard boiled eggs and tons of celery. They for sure didn’t look like this.

And now that I’ve done the whole warm potato salad goodness, I can’t go back.

I never ever want a classic potato salad ever again. Nope, serve me up all the warm goodies, please and thank you.

Oh, and the best part here is that you can make your soft boiled eggs right in the IP (3 minutes) as you assemble everything else, making this so quick and easy.

Boom. Done and done.

    I’m not ready for Salad season to end, so this is exactly what I needed!!

    Soft boiled eggs are literally my favourite thing, plus potatoes and CRISPY BACON! Yep – I’ll be making this again, in the depths of winter, when I need that something.

    Wow! I didn’t have baby potatoes so used Yukon golds. Didn’t have shallots so used scallions. Cooked my eggs hard as the hubster is funny about soft boiled. This was divine! Added some chopped celery and red bell pepper. That dressing is awesome. Will def make this again!

    OH MY.
    I ‘m a huge fan of those overly mayo-ed celery based potato salads you mentioned, but THIS – this is convert worthy. I used turkey bacon since I don’t eat pork, and used dried herbs instead of fresh, and it was still amazing!

    Very good salad.  I added sugar to the dressing. I also added some grated Parmesan cheese. In addition, I roasted my potatoes instead Of boiling them. Because of these changes, I didn’t think I could give five stars. I really don’t know what it outdo taste like made according to directions. I do know the salad dressing needed sugar. It tasted too vinegary.  This is a very good salad, that my whole family liked.

    • Why would you change the recipe completely and then give it a less than 5 star review? You didn’t actually make the recipe as written…you made a completely different dish. I see reviews like this all the time and am just so confused. If you didn’t make it as it was written you shouldn’t be writing a review. JMHO – maybe something to think about in the future.

    Made this for a baby shower and it was a hit! I only used 2lbs potatoes, half the herbs, and used bacon bits to save time. Still delicious!
