Creamy Bacon Potato Salad

Mike Norbury


I have been trying to make the wife happy with a potato salad that isn't to difficult to make for years. If it's not hard she can make it and a happy wife is a happy life. (That's what I've been told.)
Anyway she has given this a 5 star rating and it's better the next day.

As there wasn't a total time to post this, I'll put here. Takes about 1hr. 15min.
