mango and bacon potato salad and ice cream When I think summer BBQs, picnics and get togethers there are certain foods that always come to mind as classic summer foods. Two of these are potato salad and ice cream. Potato salad always pairs great with anything you decide to throw on the grill and ice cream is simply the ultimate summer dessert. But if you want to make that summer meal truly special you also have to make the food special as well and that is why last weekend I decided to make an awesome bacon and mango yogurt potato salad and followed our meal with our favorite ice cream: EDY’S® SLOW CHURNED® Simple Recipes Ice Cream.

We will be traveling for 5 weeks this summer and my parents are already getting nostalgic and saying how much they will miss the kids since they are used to seeing them every week. I know the kids will also miss los abuelos so this weekend we invited them over for a backyard picnic. I wanted to make the meal special so I decided to ditch my traditional potato salad recipe and create something different instead. They have mango trees in their backyard and this summer the trees are just filled with mangos which means we always have fresh homegrown mangos at home. As I looked at the mangos I thought: what if I added mangoes to the potato salad?

Although mango and potato salad might seem like a strange combination at first I assure you that this bacon and mango potato salad will be your new favorite potato salad recipe! And because it’s made with yogurt and fresh mangos it’s refreshing and light and tastes so good that no one realizes it’s made with healthy ingredients. This was so good that even my kids who are not huge potato salad fans devoured it, although have a feeling that they ate so fast because they also wanted to finish dinner so they could get to the ice cream!

    Good thing is that it’s lunch time, so it’s ok that I’m left hungry by your post. What’s NOT ok is that whatever BB makes is not gonna taste as good as your potatoe salad looks. ; ) Oh yeah, this is getting pinned for sure. BB2U
