Bacon wrapped baby potato salad


I would love to win with the Hot Potato Blogger Challenge because this take on ‘potato salad’ is not only nutritious; it’s easy to put together and tastes yummy. Yes, nutritious and yummy in one sentence sounds bizarre but this really is! The inspiration from this dish is from my love for all sorts of salads, and well of course potato salad, but my mission was to keep this salad healthy, fun, appealing and tasty.


Try it out for your next weekend braai; it’s perfect to share with big crowds or a large family.
