When I dreamed this salad up, I was craving a potato salad with tons of great crunch and extra flavor from added vegetables. It sounded delicious, and I’m happy to report that this bell pepper potato salad was fabulous.
You can use whichever color bell peppers you like best for this salad. I typically use what I happen to have on hand. For these photos, I used about half each of green, red, orange, and yellow peppers.
Loaded Potato Salad
I adore potato salad. I’ve made more than a few different potato salad recipes in my day. One of my favorite things about them is how endlessly versatile they are. You can load them up with different ingredients, adjust the dressing, and it’s a whole new dish.
For this potato salad, you can use any potato you like. I like Yukon Gold potatoes because there’s no need to peel them, as their skins are so thin. If you use russet or red potatoes, you’ll want to peel the potatoes for the best results.
Bell Pepper Potato Salad
You’ll need the following ingredients to make this recipe:
- Red or Yukon Gold potatoes
- red and green bell peppers
- red onion
- fresh Italian parsley
- dijon mustard
- dill pickle relish
- dried dill
- smoked paprika
- garlic powder
- kosher salt and black pepper
Start by placing the potatoes in a large pot and cover with water. Boil over high heat until fork tender, about 10 minutes. Then, drain and let cool.
While the potatoes are boiling, whisk together the mayonnaise, pickle relish, dill, paprika, salt, and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Then, add the potatoes, bell pepper, celery, carrot, onion, and eggs to the bowl. Stir to coat.
Sprinkle with parsley and stir to combine. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.
As written, this recipe makes a large batch of potato salad. It’s perfect for potlucks and large gatherings. But, you can reduce the portions for fewer servings.
