I had a potato salad at one of my husband's family gatherings, and my niece brought a potato salad with bacon in it, and a light went on in my head. Her salad was yummy, but when I put this together, I loved it. My family and friends love it too. We serve it at all of out family get togethers, and make a hugely huge bowl for barbeques and picnics.
Prepare all ingredients as described in the ingredient list. Best if you prepare the potatoes, bacon, and eggs ahead and refrigerate, until about an hour before serving.
Mash the egg yolks with a fork and stir into the mayonnaise. Combine with sugar and salt and pepper.
Place prepared potatoes, egg whites, bacon, tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, and onions into a very large salad bowl. Combine carefully by folding ingredients into the dressing mixture. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
