Are you a mayo lover or a mayo hater?! I actually can’t eat mayo due to a food allergy, but according to this hilarious Buzzed video, where mayo haters try mayonnaise, people tend to love or hate it. Fortunately, for the purposes of this post it doesn’t matter how you feel about mayo. The tri-colored potato salad is a winner for those on both sides of the heated mayo debate with its appealing (mayo-free) dijon vinaigrette.
Now, that we’ve solved the to mayo or not to mayo debate, let’s here a bit about the dish. Bacon and scallions are two of my favorite ingredients. The bacon brings warmth, while the scallions bring freshness. You can cook up some extra of both of these ingredients to garnish your side dish. (This means that those who have the first scoop of this side will certainly have the best scoop with the extra ingredients. Yum!)
Now, this mayo free dressing adds a bit of lightness and tang to the salad. Since you add it while the potatoes are still warm, they have plenty of time to absorb all the flavor before cooling. This dish makes great leftovers as well to pack for lunch! So, without further ado, let’s see that recipe!

That’s about it from here! This recipe quickly became a classic dish in our family. It’s a great side for bigger gatherings as well. And, these flavors are sure to transition you from summer to fall. Finally, I’m sharing this dish with my favorite party in the blogosphere- Fiesta Friday. This week it’s co-hosted by Julie @ Hostess At Heart and Liz @ Spades, spatulas, & spoons.
