Excellent potato salad and so easy! I made a few changes because I was out of some of the ingredients--instead of bacon I used artificial bacon bits and I eliminated the celery. I also ran out of mayonnaise and used about 1 cup of mayonnaise and 1/2 cup of low-fat sour cream. The only other change I made was slicing the hard-boiled eggs instead of chopping them. Even with my subsitutions this salad was excellent and will definitely be making it again this summer.

My new go-to potato salad for all family gatherings!! The taste is awesome (I think it's the love in the bacon). I admit, though, that I only used 3/4 of the dressing - I always use less dressing than most recipes call for. Thanks for sharing.

I have made this a couple of times, with and without the bacon. I like with out the bacon better, it`s excellent !! I was looking for a potato salad recipe, like Mom used to make, this is it (omitting the bacon)!! I find it`s best to make it the day before the event, for all the favors to mingle. If you are using a super starchy potato, like a russet, you will have to increase the mayo. I like to use a less starchy potato. And I did increase the celery, by a 1/3. Great recipe Karen.

Excellent potato salad recipe! It had a remarkable consistency and flavor to it. I wouldn't change a thing except to make a bigger batch next time! The entire family loved it!

I think this might be the best potato salad ever made. I'm so excited to bring it to my fam BBQ tomorrow and show off :) I only used 1/2 tsp of salt, 1tsp celery seeds (mine are kind of old, so I'm not confident about their flavor) and added 4 eggs. Thanks for the forever and ever keeper!!! Update: I make this all the time and it is frequently requested by family. I use 6 slices of bacon, and this past time used 1 tsp of celery salt to replace the celery seed and salt. So delicious thank you!

This recipe is amazing! The only thing I did differently was to leave out the bacon because of vegetarians in the family (it was great even without it!) and I doubled the potatoes and did 1 and a 1/2 times the amount of creamy stuff because of how many people there were. Everyone loved it! They said things like "this is bangin" and "this is the best thing I have ever put in my mouth". This is going to be my go to recipe from now on!
