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.
