Update Servings
  • 1/2 pound bacon (add more if desired)
  • 5 pounds potatoes
  • 12 eggs
  • 1 medium onion, minced
  • radishes, sliced
  • 1 jar salad dressing - 30 oz.
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • Salad Supreme, to taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste
2 hrs
30 mins
2.5 hrs
  • Fry bacon, blot off excess grease with a paper towel, and then crumble into pieces; set aside.
  • Peel the potatoes, cut into chunks, put in a large pot, cover with water, and boil until just tender when poked with a fork. Do not overcook! Drain well and allow to cool.
  • While the potatoes are cooking you can boil the eggs to make hard boiled eggs. When done cooking the eggs, drain and cover with cold water to cool them down.
  • Once the potatoes are cooled, slice into thick pieces and place in a large bowl.
  • Peel the eggs, rinse, and cut in half. Remove the yolk and place on a separate plate. Dice the egg whites and add to the potatoes. Mash the yolks slightly to eliminate chunks and then add to the potatoes and egg whites.
  • Add the minced onions. Clean and slice radishes and add to the other ingredients.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the salad dressing, mustard, and sugar; mix thoroughly and add to the potatoes and eggs.
  • Stir dressing into other ingredients until everything is evenly coated; sprinkle lightly with Salad Supreme and add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Stir in the crumbled bacon.
  • Taste test and adjust salad supreme, sugar, salt and pepper as needed for your personal taste.
  • Chill in the refrigerator for several hours before serving.
Note: The potato salad can be made up 1 to 2 days ahead of time and then be refrigerated until serving.

"I made this for a graduation party for my niece this last weekend. Didn't know if I liked it right after I made it but after it sat overnight it was great. Everyone loved the bacon in it. I got lots of compliments."
