Potato Salad with Bacon

  • SERVINGS: 4
  • MAKE-AHEAD

The smaller the potatoes you choose for this salad, the better they'll taste; just be sure not to overcook them. Toss them in the stock mixture while they're still warm so that they can absorb all of the flavors.

  1. 1 1/2 pounds small new potatoes
  2. One 1/4 -pound piece of slab bacon, sliced 1/4 inch thick and cut into 1-inch strips
  3. 1/4 cup chicken stock or canned low-sodium broth
  4. 1 tablespoon finely chopped shallots
  5. 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
  6. 1 tablespoon Dijon or grainy mustard
  7. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  8. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  9. Chives, for garnish
  1. Cook the new potatoes in boiling salted water until tender, 12 to 15 minutes; drain.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium skillet, cook the bacon, stirring occasionally, over moderately high heat until crisp, about 4 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
  3. Peel the potatoes as soon as they're cool enough to handle. In a bowl, toss the potatoes with the stock, shallots, vinegar and mustard and let stand for 1 hour, tossing occasionally. Add the bacon and olive oil, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Garnish with chives and serve at room temperature.
