  1. Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until slightly tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and cool. Remove skin from potatoes; quarter and slice.
  2. Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
  3. Combine potatoes, bacon, onion, celery, and eggs together in a bowl. Whisk mayonnaise, milk, sour cream, vinegar, celery salt, salt, and black pepper together in a separate bowl. Fold mayonnaise mixture into potato mixture until incorporated. Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight to allow flavors to blend.

Nana has some good ideas - but the liquidity of the salad is a twist on the heavy feeling and it allows the seasonings to swim. Also, I reccomend Applewood smoked bacon, in the mix and also as a garnish because although the mixed part may be soggy, it serves 2 functions: the savory smoky flavor melds with the salad and adds a punch and the residual fat from the bacon stiffens up the liquidity. If you only garnish with bacon and omit the milk, you miss a punch! For those who like dill or pickles, they are a good substitution for vinegar and a flavor booster!

Yum! Bacon! What a nice addition to potato salad. I mixed up the dressing and did not add the milk as I thought it would make the dressing too thin. I did use the white vinegar but next time I would use pickle juice instead and add dill pickles to the potato salad. I don't care for soggy bacon so I set that aside and then put it in just before serving. Thanks for a tasty recipe.



My husband can't get enough of this potato salad! I made a couple of changes, and added about a tablespoon of the bacon drippings to the dressing to get even more of that wonderful bacon flavor. Really delicious!
