Here is Emeril's recipe for his favorite potato salad.


  • 14 small boiling potatoes (such as Red Bliss - about 2 1/2 pounds), scrubbed well
  • 8 slices bacon, crisp, cooked and crumbled
  • 6 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 1/3 cup red onions, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup celery, finely chopped
  • Homemade Ranch Dressing (or your favorite bottled ranch dressing)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • Cooking Directions

    Place the potatoes in a medium saucepan with enough water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil over high heat, lower to a simmer, and cook until the potatoes are just tender, 15 minutes to 20 minutes.

    Drain, let cool, then cut the potatoes into bite-size pieces. In a large mixing bowl, combine the potatoes with all the remaining ingredients and gently toss. Refrigerate the salad several hours before serving to allow the flavors to blend.
