Vinegar and yogurt give this salad a refreshing tang that's unlike typical potato salads with heavy creamy dressings. My family loves the crispness of the onion and celery and the heartiness that comes from the eggs and crumbled bacon. -Page Alexander, Baldwin City, Kansas

"No mayonnaise! I made this twice--the first time I left out the bacon, and the second time I put bacon in. It was good both times, but better with the bacon. I didn't have time to let it cool, and it was still very good."
