    Delicious!!! I used light mayo and sour cream and a 3 oz bag of bacon bits. Also, to speed things up a bit, I cut up red potatoes into 1 inch cubes (skins on) and then boiled till slightly firm, about 15 minutes. Then mixed everything. Everyone loved it, it was a hit!!

    This is very close to the potato salad my mother made. She didn't use sour cream. I've made it for many years and always get raves. I add a little of the bacon grease, just enough for flavor and it doesn't make it greasy, just decrease the mayo a little. Can't wait for bbq season to make some!

    I made this for Easter too, just now writing a review. This is the best potato salad I have ever had! It is very similar to a version that my mother makes but it must be the bacon that puts it over the top. Next time I will add parsley to it for color. I hosted Easter dinner and everyone really enjoyed this dish, including my mom! This is a truly healthy version if you use red potatoes leaving the skin on with canola oil mayonnaise and light sour cream, and I use Eggland's Best eggs that have omega 3 and Vitamin E. There is even nitrate-free bacon out there as well. I encourage anyone to try this recipe!!

    I made this for easter and it was a huge hit. great to make the day before, I either didn't make enough potatoes or the recipe makes alot of sauce, thankfully I added it slowly and used just enough, my dad loved it so much i'm using the extra dressing to make him another batch! I am just coming into my cooking shoes and this recipe definitely will impress and any beginner can do!

    Made this for easter to accompany our glazed ham and it was so delicious. Everyone really liked it and it was easy to make. Good, solid southern potato salad with the crumbled bacon giving it a little something different. Would definitely recommend it for an Easter dinner side dish or to accompany any barbecue.

    Oh goodness -- this potato salad is absolutely delicious and perfect for summer parties. You can adjust any of the ingredients to your liking. After a day that it sits in the fridge, it getts better. That's not a good thing for me because I kept going back for more and more and I made myself sick ! I love the sour cream and bacon adds.

    This is an amazing potato salad. Way better than anything you could find in the store. The bacon really makes it. Everyone loved it!
