This was very tasty. I did change it into more of a German Potato salad though. I used red potatoes and used regular mustard. Didn't add the spinach as I didn't have and it was great as a side dish. Also I cut up the potatoes into wedges and put some olive oil on them and microwaved to soften then onto a lined jelly roll pan to bake at 420 degrees for 20 min before mixing with the vinaigrette. Will be making this again.

Excellent side dish! I couldn't believe the flavors in this one for such a quick recipe! My only tweak was to swap out the dijon mustard for 1 tsp of dry mustard, and I did include one extra strip of bacon in the pan / dish. Otherwise, made as directed and couldn't have been happier. I made sure to add the spinach right away to the still hot pot after draining the potatoes to get the greens to wilt a bit; just stirred until they were incorporated then combined all the remaining ingredients. The end result was lovely - served with fresh steamed green beans and simply seasoned grilled steaks for a wonderful summer cookout feast. Will absolutely make again! Enjoy!

This was a good, quick and easy side dish with some tweaking. It was heavy on the vinegar, so I ended up adding extra mustard and sugar to compensate. I also sautéed some minced garlic with the bacon. Next time I'll add more spinach, because I like a lot of greens.
