This classic base recipe for potato salad can be seasoned with a trip around the world depending on what spices and fresh herbs you have on hand. We did versions cheese blends, an Asian-style seasoning, and with Greek inspired flavors.



Pick one of the above seasoning options to combine with the base recipe. Or triple the base recipe and serve all three seasoning options for a party.


Dice potatoes into ½- to 1-inch pieces, depending on your bite size preference. Place potatoes in a large pot, add a dash of salt and cover with water. Bring to a boil and simmer until potatoes are just tender, about 5 to 7 min. Drain, rinse potatoes with cold water and set aside to cool. Cook bacon in a small skillet until crisp, transfer to paper towel-lined plate to cool, then dice into small pieces. Place bacon pieces in a large bowl and add remaining ingredients for the base recipe. Stir in ingredients for one of the seasoning options. Gently stir in cooled potatoes. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

"I wanted to Thank You for the care that went into my last order. Everything was bagged and wrapped PERFECTLY. It really means a lot when I get a note thanking me for the business, and Nate- who wrote the note and I presume filled the order- did an OUTSTANDING job! I found you over 3 years ago while looking for specific spices for a Vodka recipe. I was so tired running from store to store looking for hard to find spices like Ras el Hanout, Fenugreek seeds, Berbere seasoning, or pomegranate molasses! Your fresh and potent spices, blends and waters make me look like a 'rock star chef' to my family- they THINK I know what I am doing! Thank you again for the choices you give to us and for a fabulous product!"
