Can you believe it?! Easter is right around the corner… this weekend! And no Easter is complete without potato salad. Today I’m sharing a favorite recipe: Red Potato Salad.

Honestly, I can’t remember an Easter Sunday dinner at my mama’s or grandma’s when we DIDN’T have potato salad. It’s most definitely an Easter staple side dish!
This potato salad is full of bacon, crunchy celery, green onions and seasoned with dill. I love the flavors of the green onions with red potatoes, mayonnaise with a hint of spicy mustard.
I didn’t add hard-boiled eggs to this potato salad because I’ve always eaten red potato salad without them. I prefer them in potato salad with white potatoes (like in my Mom’s Potato Salad). But if you can’t live without them, by all means add them! You just might have to add a little more mayonnaise to get the same creamy consistency.
Enjoy and I hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter holiday!
