Baked Potato Salad Recipe with Vidalia Onion Vinaigrette (The Kids Cook Monday) - Andrea Meyers (1)

Baked Potato Salad Recipe with Vidalia Onion Vinaigrette (The Kids Cook Monday) - Andrea Meyers (2)Potato salad is synonymous with summer and one of our favorite things to eat with grilled meats. Our boys haven’t really been fond of potato salad or anything potato until the last six months. Hockey Guy has suddenly become Mr. Potato and Top Gun isn’t far behind, and part of the reason is this baked potato salad. The combination of colorful potatoes and simple homemade Vidalia onion vinaigrette won over the family, and it’s perfect for cookouts because there’s no dairy and won’t spoil so quickly on a summer day.

We used to buy the bottled Vidalia onion dressing, but since we started making this at home, we can’t go back to store-bought because the flavor is so fresh. And it’s so easy the kids can make it with a little supervision at the food processor.

Here’s how we make it:

How Adults Can Help the Kids

  • Demonstrate and assist with any tasks that might be new: measuring and pouring.
  • Assign the simpler tasks such as cleaning the potatoes and measuring the vinaigrette ingredients to the younger kids, and save the more challenging tasks for the older kids and adults.

Safety Tips

  • Make sure an adult is present at all times.
  • Young children should not use a food processor by themselves. Make sure an adult or older child or teenager helps.
  • The potatoes and will be very hot when they come out of the oven, so teach the children to not touch the hot pan.

Baked Potato Salad with Vidalia Onion Vinaigrette

Course: Salad

Cuisine: American

Diet: Gluten Free, Vegetarian

Keyword: onions, potatoes, summer

Servings: 8 servings

Calories: 274kcal

Author: Andrea Meyers


  • bottom of a roasting pan

  • food processor


  • 3 pounds small potatoes (scrubbed clean)
  • 1 large Vidalia onion (peeled and cut into 8 wedges)
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard (gluten-free brand)
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 3 ounces extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

US Customary - Metric


  • Preheat the oven to 425° F/220° C. Arrange the potatoes on the roasting pan and bake until tender when pierced with a fork, about 25 to 30 minutes.

  • While the potatoes bake, put the Vidalia onion wedges in the food processor and process until the onion is minced and juicy, about 15 to 20 seconds. Add the apple cider vinegar, honey, Dijon mustard, sea salt, and pepper. Process until all the ingredients are thoroughly mixed together, about 10 seconds. While running the processor, drizzle in the olive oil until it is fully suspended, about 5 to 8 seconds. Pour into a pint jar.

  • Remove the potatoes from the oven and allow to cool in the pan until they are warm but not burning your fingers, about 5 to 10 minutes. Quarter the potatoes and put the pieces in a serving bowl. Toss about ½ cup (120 ml) of the vinaigrette with the potatoes, adding more vinaigrette to taste. Toss in the parsley and serve. The remaining vinaigrette can be used for other salads and will keep in the refrigerator up to two weeks.
