Hello -

Enjoy this classic IBS recipe!

Picnic Potato Salad

Potatoes are a terrific soluble fiber staple (remember, soluble fiber is the key to bowel stability), and small red potatoes work perfectly in this dish. Because their skin is so thin, and they are both cooked and chopped, you can leave these potatoes unpeeled. This will safely add insoluble fiber to the meal.

The tangy sweet-and-sour notes of this salad come from apple cider vinegar with a dash of sugar, and the addition of paprika and celery seed adds color as well as spice.

Traditionally, the delicious smoky flavor in warm potato salad recipes comes from bacon. In my IBS-friendly recipe, that high fat pork - a huge trigger for IBS - is replaced with low fat turkey or veggie bacon (and if you've never tried these, you're in for a wonderful surprise). You lose the triggers but keep the wonderful flavors.

Adding Tummy Fiber is a fast and easy way to give an even better soluble fiber foundation to the dish.

Makes 4-6 Servings

8 medium red or white thin-skin potatoes (not Russets)
4-6 slices low fat turkey or veggie bacon, diced
1/4 cup diced sweet white onion, OR diced celery
2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup water
3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp celery seed
1 T Tummy Fiber Acacia
1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh chives

Boil potatoes till tender, and slice into one inch chunks while hot. Set aside.

While the potatoes are boiling, in a medium well-seasoned skillet over medium high heat, fry bacon and onion/celery in oil until bacon is crispy and onion/celery is golden. Add all remaining ingredients except chives and potatoes to skillet and stir well.

Pour skillet mixture over hot potatoes and fold together gently but well. Top with chives and serve warm or at room temperature.
