This is the best potato salad recipe ever. It has the creaminess of original potato salad but with an added crunch of bacon. Yum, who can resist bacon? Then add the fresh taste of the parsley and chives to make the perfect potato salad recipe. I love to make this recipe for barbecues and parties, everyone raves about it.
