Very good recipe. A nice version of a classic salad. I would have liked more dressing and much more onion, but overall this was still very good. I got a little confused in step 5 where the bacon is removed from the pan, cooled & crumbled, and then in step 7 you are adding ingredients back to the bacon in the pan. I was on my way to the sink to clean out my skillet as the bacon cooled when I realized I would be needing the warm pan & the grease. Also - I would recommend whisking the flour into the dressing before adding it to the pan. The flour got a bit clumpy when added to the warm sauce.
I think your mom's potato salad is perfect just the way it is. I wouldn't change a thing. It wasn't too sweet and the vinegar wasn't too overpowering. It doesn't have a lot of unnecessary ingredients and it's not missing any. Perfect.
Very good,and easy to make! Hubby loved it too.
I've made this twice and both times used turkey bacon and it still came out delicious!
