Hot Potato Salad with Bacon and Ham


2.5 - 3 pounds small red potatoes, cut to bite size pieces

3/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon cayenne

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1/3 cup finely chopped celery

2 tablespoons finely chopped scallions

1 tablespoon chopped parsley leaves

4 hard-boiled eggs, coarsely chopped

3/4 cup mayonnaise

1 1/2 tablespoons dijon mustard

4 strips crisp cooked bacon, crumbled

1/2 cup cubed ham


Put the potatoes in a saucepan and add enough water to cover, add a little kosher salt for flavor, and bring to a boil. Cook for about 10 minutes, until for tender.

While potatoes are cooking, prepare the dressing.

In a large bowl, combine mayo, mustard, salt, pepper, cayenne, and lemon juice; mix to combine.

Add drained potatoes and remaining ingredients; toss and serve warm. Leftovers are also good cold, but I think it's best served warm.
