Artichoke Bacon Potato Salad

I created this recipe because I tasted an artichoke and bacon pasta salad I liked and thought that the same concept would be good as a potato salad. This can be made more healthy by using fat-free mayo and turkey bacon.

I think it was the garlic that I didn't care for in this recipe. It overwhelmed all the taste of the other ingredients. The combination of other ingredients was fine; I might try it again but leave out the garlic.

Yummmmm! A great change from the typical potato salad. We made pretty much a half recipe- we didn't use the full quanity mayo called for, just enough to get the consistancy to how we like it and only used 2 slices bacon. I didn't have Italian dressing so I used some Italian spices (basil, oregano, thyme, and rosemary), some red wine vinegar, a pinch of sugar and some olive oil to replace it, which I feel worked just fine. I just used the plain canned artichoke hearts, but next time I think I would follow the example of some of the other reviewers and use marinated. The bacon and artichoke flavors paired wonderfully and this was gone in a flash! Thanks, Tierney's Mom!!
