One of my friends always put bacon in her potato salad. The only thing was that I did not like the onions or celery that was also in it. So I took a traditional recipe and played with the celery salt and onion powder until I came up with a good flavor. Now I can have the best of both worlds....bacon and no onions or celery! I always take this camping when we go or to bbq's. It is always a favorite.
