Ultimate Bacon and Parmesan Potato Salad

Now that it’s summer-time, I expect to eat plenty of my favorite side dish — potato salad! And I hope that lots of those potato salad are homemade. There’s just something so much better about a homemade potato salad versus a store bought one.

Last week when we went to Tiny Town, I volunteered to make the potato salad. I wasn’t really sure how I was going to make it, but I knew that I wanted two of my favorite ingredients in it — bacon and parmesan cheese. I also knew I wanted to make it lactose free (which, of course, you don’t have to!) so I could enjoy it without feeling bad.

So I came home from the grocery store, and just started throwing different things together, and grabbing different ingredients from the fridge. And the final verdict? So good. This bacon and parmesan potato salad is the best I’ve ever had. I could hardly stand to wait until our picnic to eat it! It tasted like no other potato salad I’ve had before, and I can hardly wait until I have another chance to make it.

Everyone else really enjoyed it as well, and it was almost completely gone by the time we went home. This recipe makes a ton — it could easily feed 15 people. So adjust accordingly!
