  • 6 cups cooled, chopped salt potatoes
  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick), melted
  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp sherry
  • 1/2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup finely diced red onion
  • 1/2-3/4 cup chopped fresh herbs parsley/cilantro/basil- whatever combination you prefer
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 4-5 strips bacon cooked crisp & crumbled


  • Melt the butter in a small skillet or soup pot.
  • To the melted butter, add the vinegar, sherry, and garlic. Whisk until combined.
  • Add the onions, herbs, and pepper- stirring to combine.
  • Add the potatoes to a large mixing bowl. Pour the dressing over top, and gently toss just until everything's evenly combined.
  • Serve warm, topped with crisp bacon crumbles, and enjoy!


Store any leftovers in the refrigerator, covered.
To reheat and serve- heat the now cold potato salad in a microwave safe dish for 2-3 minutes, just until the butter-based dressing has softened. Toss gently to re coat, and serve.
