Ladies and gentlefolk, I present to you your new go-to summer potluck dish.
Those of us in the Midwest know the potluck well. In winter, it’s all about bringing hot dishes in slow cookers stuffed in boxes with blankets to keep food warm (I’m serious — at one potluck I went to last winter, about eight of 10 people came bearing blanketed crockpots in cardboard boxes, and it was amazing). In summer, it’s all about bringing food that pairs well with anything that can be grilled. Because in Minnesota in summer, it’s practically a sin to not be outside at all times.
This Green Goddess potato salad with bacon and peas is a natural fit for the latter (though I’d gladly eat it in the winter, too, alongside my warm hot dish from a blanketed crockpot). It’s just like a classic potato salad with hard-boiled eggs, but instead of mayo we use a creamy homemade, herb-loaded Green Goddess dressing, plus some crisp bacon and fresh peas. Bring this to your next gathering and you’ll be the Potluck Queen/King (which I’m pretty sure is better than being anything else, ever).4
