I have been making this salad for a long time already, it is my hubby's favourite Very Happy

Ingredients:

3 med size potatoes, peeled & cut into bite-sized cubes
1 small onion, chopped finely
1 green/red pepper, chopped finely
4 strips bacon, cut into small pieces
Miracle whip dressing, about 4 tbsps (add more if u prefer more dressing)
Salt
Black pepper

Method:

1. Boil potatoes in salted water until tender, about 15 mins. Do not let potatoes become mushy.
2. Brown bacon in microwave on high for about 1 min per strip, until bacon is crisp & brown. Alternatively, bacons can be browned using pan-fry method.
3. When potatoes are cooked, place them in a large mixing bowl.
4. Add in all the ingredients and toss them together until well mixed.
5. Season the salad with salt & black pepper.
6. Store salad in an air-tight tupperware & chill in the fridge overnight or until it's cold enough to eat.


*Sometimes I replace bacon with hard-boiled eggs. This salad is best served with dinner rolls & buffalo chicken strips or simply eat it plain*

Just curious, what is the difference between mayonnaise (sp?) and miracle whip?

This is my favorite recipe for potato salad. Nothing else seems to compare. I like adding a few more egg yolks for a richer taste.

    3 pounds small red boiling potatoes (15-18 potatoes)
    6 large eggs, hard-cooked
    1 medium red onion, finely chopped
    1 medium green bell pepper, seeded and finely chopped
    2 medium celery ribs, finely chopped
    2 teaspoons celery seed
    2/3 cup mayonnaise
    2 tablespoons yellow mustard
    3 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    Paprika

Mayonnaise is a bit sour if u were to compare to the taste of miracle whip dressing.

Allen,

we can't get this in Singapore. Do you have a picture of how it looks like?
and what is sweet pickle relish? something home made or comes in a commercial packed jar?

relish is like chutney. they are fruit preserved, normally in a jar, like jam. normally you spread them on your bread also like in making sandwiches.. i have sweet corn relish at home. you can also buy tomato relish etc.

It is a kind of preserve eaten with hotdogs. I just love the taste of it.

Celery Seeds


Sweet Relish

Sauerkraut is perserved cabbage, similar to relish, pickles, turnips, etc. Sauerkraut and relish are commonly used on hot dogs here in the US, New York and Chicago especially. Relish can be commercially canned or bought at a specialty foods store.

You can get sauerkraut from certain NTUCs, as well as cold storage, Jasons etc. My MIL used to get hers from NTUC coronation road, but I find that after it renovated, the selection there is quite pathetic. She usually buys the S&W brand, and cooks it with pork ribs and pepper seeds.

HTH.

Hi everyone,

My twin girl will be up for her feed soon, so I decided not to go to sleep yet. Easier than to fall asleep for 15 mins before one twin wakes up.. I am now an night owl as I am awake most nights and (days) nowadays.. :roll:

Here's my contribution to an old thread.

Instead of writing out the whole recipe.. here's my suggestion.

I also use bacon. Cut into small strips then fry till crisp.

Sometimes I use luncheon meat, mashed up and fry till crispy as Bacon in S'pore is rather expensive.

Set aside.

Using the oil plus some olive oil , fry some onions (preferable red, as it is sweeter)..thinly sliced, on low fire until caramelised. i.e. soft, browned and sweet.

Pour this and your bacon(luncheon meat)onto your cooked potatoes (skin on of off, up to you) largely cubed.

Toss through mayonniase or miricale whip, add some sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Simple but yummy.
