Potato salad with zucchini and crispy bacon. Since bacon and maple syrup are great match, I added a little bit of maple syrup for dressing. Sweet savory Potato Salad.

What a tasty spin on traditional potato salad! The subtle maple flavor adds a sweet, rich accent to the tasty taters and salty bacon.
