Personal Notes:
This is THEE best potato salad I have ever tasted!!
It is from Tidewater. I actually cook more bacon and add some just before serving, so you get some crispy bacon with some bites. I like more dill pickle in it also. Once your finished mixing all ingredients taste it as it sits in frig. and adust to your liking.
