Bacon Roasted Potato Salad

We love Potato Salad, it is a great side that will go with just about anything and it is always a big hit at a Bar B Que, or a cover dish luncheon or supper. I found the inspiration for this recipe on my Linky Party, Full Plate Thursday. In January of 2011, I launched the Thursday Recipe Party where The Greatest Cooks On The Planet Gather every Thursday.One of the Great Cooks that is a regular contributor at the party is Diane at Mamaldiane, she always brings great food and often times inspires me to try a recipe or develop a whole new approach to an old classic. She recently shared a Potato Salad at the party that inspired this recipe that we just love and hope you will enjoy it!
