Special Potato Salad Recipe

Special Potato Salad Recipe

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
