RECIPE: “Barbecue” Potato Salad
What to bring to a barbecue? Barbecue potato salad, a recipe from QVC’s chef David Venable, who blends barbecue sauce in with the mayonnaise.
Says David: “In my opinion, it’s really not a barbecue without a side of potato salad. While the classic version is near perfection, sometimes it’s fun to play with the flavors (a sure sign of a confident cook!) This dish mirrors the flavor of your favorite barbecued meats.”

1. COVER the potatoes with water and bring to a boil in a large stockpot over high heat, with 1 tablespoon salt. Cook until the potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes; drain. While the potatoes are cooking…
2. RENDER the bacon until crisp in a large skillet over medium-high heat, about 5 minutes. Drain the bacon on several paper towels and break into small, bite-size pieces. Set aside.
3. MIX the mayonnaise, mustard, barbecue sauce and hard boiled egg in a large bowl. Slowly add the potatoes to the dressing and let them absorb the liquid, about 15 minutes. Add the celery, red onion, thyme, salt and pepper and refrigerate until well chilled.
4. GARNISH with the bacon and chives just before serving.
