This is the first potato salad recipe I have ever had on the blog because, basically, I don’t like potato salad. At least not the traditional, covered in mayo potato salad. Now I know there are lots of great mayo based potato salad recipes out there and my husband is a fan of them.

But today’s recipe for potato salad is my kind of potato salad. Potatoes roasted in olive oil and then coated in balsamic vinegar, bacon and herbs! This potato salad is just as good warm as it is at room temperature. In fact, it is best to let it cool for a while before you add the balsamic vinegar mixture so it doesn’t totally soak up into the warm potatoes.

In addition to the balsamic vinegar, the addition of fresh parsley, bacon and green onions to this potato salad give it lots of flavor.
