Not bad as a guide to build upon but I found it necessary to tweak some things to make it more palatable to me. First, out of curiosity, I weighed the amount of bacon called for in the recipe. Whoa. Lots of bacon – too much for me! I think I used half that. Also, as I’ve never been a fan of straight mayonnaise in this type of salad, I cut it with sour cream. I thought it needed some contrast in texture, so, as the expression goes, I added some celery “for a little crunch.” As for the dressing, I found it a little weak. Since I made just a third of the recipe to begin with, I gratefully had some of the dressing mix left over, so I added more, along with some fresh ground pepper, dill weed and garlic powder. Finally, since I knew the salad would absorb some of the dressing as it chilled, I added some half and half to compensate. A fair amount of tweaking, I admit, but it elevated this from a wimpy three to a four star potato salad.
