Potato Salad

Warmer weather is here, at least here in the South. With warm weather comes BBQ grills, cook-outs, and family outdoor gatherings. You, of course, need food for each of those events. We often concentrate on the main entrée in our recipes, but today we’re switching gears and looking at side dishes.

A classic side dish at a cook-out is potato salad. This recipe is loaded with bacon! Can it get any better?

4 cups potatoes, boiled in salted water until fork tender, drained, and cooled

1 tbsp yellow mustard
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
