Bacon Potato Salad

"A great summer side dish from Southern Living. I adjusted their recipe slightly, since the original had too much mustard and not enough bacon for my taste!"

    I have made this several times, & it's always well received. Spicy brown mustard tastes great in this potato salad. Thanks for posting!

    This recipe was made on 4/5/10 for the " Soup,Salad,and Sandwich " And since I made it just for me, the amount was adjusted accordingly. I used about 1 1/2 pounds of red potatoes,cooked them until fork tender.For the sour cream, mayo, and mustard were adjusted to taste.Also, the salt and pepper was adjusted to taste. And I used a couple of Tablespoons of green onions, a couple of shakes of dried parsley. The amount of bacon was reduced to 3 slices. I found that this potato salad had a very light and tangy taste. Thank you for taking the time to post this recipe. " Keep Smiling :) "

    Excellent potato salad! I used left over baked potatoes (re-heated, so they would more readily absorb the flavors), and this tasted like a tangy stuffed potato. The mustard adds a nice zip. Thank you for a great recipe!

    This potato salad is awesome! I had my potatoes cooked and diced and was searching Recipezaar looking for a different way to make potato salad this morning when I ran across this recipe. My little girl does NOT like the regular mayo type potato salad but loves this one and keeps asking for another taste. I might have to make a second batch cause I don't think this one is going to make it to the bar-b-que on Sunday! I'm so glad I adopted this recipe. It's a keeper for us! Made for Adopt-a-tag.
