My neighbor served this at a baby shower and everyone wanted a copy of the recipe. This was addictive and had a unique, fresh taste. Don't leave out the bacon at the is an essential ingredient, as is the chopped cilantro and lime juice.

So tasty! I would give this recipe more than five stars if I could. I love that it is so different from the classic potato salad. I used jalapenos rather than green chilies to make it a bit spicier, and it worked out very well. I agree that the bacon is a definite must, and I will probably add another couple pieces more next time. Thanks for the delicious recipe!
