Baked Potato Salad


This is my Mother-in-Law Mary Jeffers recipe.  She is a wonderful cook and I have always loved when she shares one of her favorite recipes with me.  I have made it for more than 20 years and I always look forward to making in the warm months here in Michigan.  It goes perfectly with all your summer dinners.  It is especially nice because you can serve it warm or at room temperature.

 Enjoy and Happy cooking,

BLT Salad


Today seems like a good day for a nice Big salad for dinner. Make a little extra for lunch tomorrow!
You can use your favorite bacon for this recipe. I have fallen in head over heels for Wright Brand bacon. You will love the dressing!
Enjoy and Happy cooking,
