BBB (Basil, Bacon & Balsamic) Potato Salad


I first found this recipe at least 5 years ago on the Kraft Canada website. This salad looks amazing and the flavours of the basil, bacon and balsamic really compliment each other. It is a new spin on an old summer favourite. I think we still have several more weeks of 'summer weather' to use this recipe, don't you?

3 lb. new potatoes, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 cup thin red onion slices (I prefer to chop it)
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
2 Tbsp. Real Bacon Bits
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1/4 cup KRAFT SIGNATURE Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing
1/4 cup Mayonnaise
2 tsp. Dijon mustard

COOK potatoes in saucepan of boiling water 10 to 12 min. or until fork-tender; drain. Place in large bowl. Add onions, tomatoes, bacon and basil; mix lightly.
MIX remining ingredients. Add to potato mixture; toss to coat.

REFRIGERATE several hours or until chilled. This allows the flavours to blend together.

Variation
Prepare using Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing and mayonnaise.
