Red Potato Salads
Tomato, Haricots Verts and Potato Salad
This rustic Italian salad is a great way to showcase perfect, in-season produce. Swap out the summer tomatoes and green beans for roasted root vegetables and fennel in the winter, or asparagus and shaved artichokes in the spring--the possibilities are endless. Use tender red baby potatoes, and stir in fresh herbs like basil and parsley just before serving. The dressing for this salad is made with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, so it's much lighter than traditional potato salad--serve it alongside your favorite barbecue dish, or fold in mixed greens for a satisfying entree salad. Pair with a fragrant white blend for summery sipping.
Classic Potato Salad
Baby potatoes have a naturally sweet flavor and creamy texture that's delicious in this classic recipe.
Eggplant Potato Salad
This salad from F&W's Kay Chun combines smoky bacon and potatoes with silky eggplant. Dill and lemon add a bright, refreshing hit of flavor.
Cauliflower florets are a sly substitute for half of the baby potatoes in this creamy salad. The white-on-white combo gets zingy lift from briny capers, mustard and freshly grated horseradish.

Potato Salad with Bacon and Barbecue Sauce
The mayonnaise dressing for this potato salad gets pungency from mustard oil (store-bought spicy mustard works fine, too) and a hit of smoky-sweet flavor from bacon and bottled barbecue sauce.
Creamy Cucumber and Grilled Potato Salad
"When I was a kid, my mom would marinate cucumbers, red onions and canned potatoes in jarred creamy Italian dressing," says Jamie Bissonnette. "I'm not saying she was a great cook, but creamy Italian dressing is still my favorite. I make a version of it for this salad."
Grilled Potato and Onion Salad with Blue Cheese and Bacon
Jeri Ryan's favorite sandwich stuffing is a mix of crumbly cheese, crispy bacon and charred red onions. She likes the savory combination so much she's turned it into a salad with tender new potatoes. It's incredibly good as a side with grilled beef tenderloin or steak.
Potato Salad with Honey-Buttermilk Dressing
This creamy potato salad gets a flavor punch from fresh herbs like chives, parsley and tarragon.
