Anyway, that was way more than I intended to say about rice and I am sure more than you wanted to read about. Yet you are still reading. At least if you know I said that last part, you are.
Anyway again. I got this hankering for warm potato salad. While I was making it, my nieces came in unannounced and very welcome because that's what nieces do. I immediately set about doubling the recipe. Still, they ate it all. They moaned some while they ate, so it occurred to me you might like to eat it and moan too.
Enjoy. (I wonder if you could substitute rice for the potatoes, thus making rice salad. I'll get aback to you on that.)
Warm Potato Salad
1 lb. red potatoes, boiled until tender
1/3 lb. bacon.
I cup sliced sweet onion
½ t. dry mustard
1 T. vinegar
½ cup olive oil
¼ cup mayonnaise (I use reduced fat Hellmann's Olive Oil).
salt and pepper to taste
1 scallion, sliced
Cook bacon until crisp. Drain most of the grease and caramelize onion in what is left. Add to potatoes. For dressing, mix mustard, vinegar, olive oil, and mayonnaise. Mix dressing into potatoes mixtures. Stir in scallions. Correct seasonings.
Serve warm or at room temperature.
You can add 2 chopped boiled eggs if you want. The original recipe calls for them, but I have never put them in. It just seems wrong. Plus I don't like boiled eggs very much.
