I don't like potato salad but since this recipe uses Caesar dressing instead of mayo I decided to try it, it tastes amazing. I love bacon so I used bacon flavoured Caesar dressing and added some extra bacon to the salad.
Excellent and different! Loved the Caesar dressing instead of plain old mayo and used fresh green beans instead of the frozen. Will definitely keep this recipe handy for the future. Thanks, JG.
This was simply one of the best recipes for potato salad that I've ever had the pleasure of eating. The recipe came together quickly and was a perfect side dish for our grilled hamburgers. I loved the addition of the caesar dressing instead of the more traditional mayonnaise. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
