Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe doesn't separate or get watery the next day. For that reason, it is a perfect make ahead potato salad. The bacon adds a delicious texture and smoky taste to an old fashioned family reunion or barbecue favorite side dish. It is of my own creation and has never been published in a cookbook anywhere. I, personally, do not care for hard boiled eggs or raw onions so I leave them out when I make it, but I know there are people that think that a potato salad is not complete unless it contains both of those ingredients.

COOKS NOTE:

Bacon bit tip: Partially freeze your package of bacon. Use a sharp knife and cut the frozen bacon into long strips about 1/4 inch wide. Turn the bacon and cut the strips into pieces also about 1/4 in wide. You now have perfect raw bacon pieces to fast fry. No need to separate. They will separate during cooking. Perfect bacon bits.

6 medium potatoes (2 pounds)
1 lb bacon
1 cup thinly sliced celery
