Potato Salad with Turkey Bacon
Potato Salad with Turkey Bacon is a simple and very lightly oiled dish. Grapeseed Oil, which is lighter than Olive Oil, gives the dish a lighter texture. This dish replaces a non-traditional Roasted Potato with Ham or Pan-fried Potato with some sort of meat.
The potatoes are boiled and mixed with a dressing made with grapeseed oil, rice wine vinegar, chives, salt, pepper, chili garlic sauce for that special kick, and Turkey Bacon. The vinaigrette brings out the earthiness taste of the potatoes and makes this Potato Salad with Turkey Bacon a wonderful side dish.

- 4 medium Potatoes
- 4 thin slices Turkey Bacon
- 1 1/2 tablespoon Pure Grapeseed Oil (more if necessary)
- 1/2 teaspoon All Natural Rice Wive Vinegar (low sodium)
- 1/4 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper

To make the Potato Salad with Turkey Bacon, use an all natural brand of turkey bacon. Use yukon potatoes or kennebec potatoes. They hold well when boiling and creamy in texture when mixed with a dressing.
Cook the potatoes until fully cooked but still firm. Let cool before removing skin and cutting into cubes - add potatoes in a large bowl and set aside. Cook the bacon on a griddle until crispy. Remove and let cool. Break slices into bits and set aside. In a small bowl, prepare dressing by adding grapeseed oil, rice wine vinegar, salt, pepper, garlic chili sauce and chives. Add turkey bits and dressing to potatoes and gently blend well. Serve immediately.
