    Nicole Brummett's Note:

    This is an easy, & fun salad to make. Also an easy one for kids to make or help with. This looks great on the table--everyone loves it. Prep time depends on if you cook bacon or use jar. I used the prep time for making this with the jar. Also, the cook time is really the chill time.

      Just the right amount of sweet in this salad! I was worried about adding the sugar to the salad because of a bad experience with potato salad I made recently that was way too sweet, but this was great! I added 1/2 of a sweet vadalia onion for added flavor and we were very pleased with the results. Delicious! Thanks for sharing. Mike

      This is a very pretty and tasty salad. I used the jar bacon bits, and Splenda in the dressing. I am taking this to a potluck tonight. Whenever I make it, it is very popular!! Thanks, Nicole, for posting this keeper recipe!
