  • 2 pounds purple potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil or avocado oil

  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper, plus more to taste

  • 4 slices bacon, chopped

  • ½ cup finely chopped red onion

  • ¼ cup cider vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard

  • 1 cup sliced celery


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

  2. Toss potatoes in a large bowl with oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Transfer to a large rimmed baking sheet. Roast, stirring once, until tender and browned, 20 to 25 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, cook bacon in a medium skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer with a slotted spoon to a paper-towel-lined plate. Add onion, vinegar and mustard to the pan. Cook, stirring constantly and scraping up the browned bits, for 1 minute. Remove from heat.

  4. Transfer the potatoes to a large bowl and drizzle with the dressing; stir to combine. Add celery and the bacon and toss to coat. Season with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and more pepper to taste.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
