BBQ Side Dish - Potato Salad

What's better than a bbq pork sandwich and either a side dish of baked beans or a large helping of potato salad? In my view...a bbq pork sandwich and side orders of both baked beans and potato salad!

The baked beans recipe will have to wait for another day, but I ran across a recipe today in the Wichita Eagle for potato salad that looks good. I haven't had time to try it out yet, but here it is if you'd like to add it to your recipe collection.

Home-Style BBQ Potato Salad

3 lbs. small red potatoes, quartered
½ cup olive oil
½ cup ketchup
¼ cup cider vinegar
1 ½ teaspoons ground mustard
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 ½ cups thinly sliced celery
1 cup coarsely chopped red bell pepper
½ cup chopped red onion

Bring potatoes to boil in slightly salted water in large saucepot. Reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes or until fork tender. Drain well. Cool slightly.

Mix oil, ketchup, vinegar, mustard, black pepper and salt in large bowl with wire whisk until well blended. Add potatoes, celery, bell pepper and onion; toss gently to coat. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.
