Directions

  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!

It's different, not mushy, if you use less mayo, the best recipe I've used so far. Also, it's good without eggs, if you don't like eggs in potato salad.
