Recycled Potato Salad

Okay, so I am still trying to use up the leftover potatoes from our seafood boil.  I also had some leftover deviled eggs.

Hmmm....potatoes, eggs....well, of course, I made potato salad.  I cut up the potatoes and eggs, added some onion and celery.  The dressing was made using a 1/4 carton of sour cream, a little miracle whip left in the bottom of the jar and a couple of tablespoons of ranch dressing in the bottom of the bottle.  I also added in a package of bacon bits that were in my cupboard because.....bacon.

Now I am not a fan of potato salad as I told you about in this post but Frank loves potato salad so I make it every once in a while to make him happy.  He thought that this recipe is a keeper so I am sharing it with you today for the next time you are face with a little of this and a little of that in your refrigerator.
