Simple but delicious, our tarragon bacon potato salad takes just 30 minutes to prepare.
Our bacon potato salad is the perfect balance of creamy, salty, and fresh. You can prepare it ahead making it ideal for picnics and barbecues. We have used baby Charlotte new potatoes as we like the waxy texture. They keep their shape after boiling but still have a nice soft bite. You can peel the potatoes but we keep the skins on to benefit from the fiber and vitamins it contains.
Buy ready-cooked crispy bacon to save time and washing up
The salad can be prepared the day before but we recommend reserving a little bacon and tarragon for you to garnish on the day you want to serve.
Add chopped grilled asparagus or Tenderstem broccoli to bulk the salad out.
