I got this recipe from my cousin who is so creative and such an amazing cook (literally almost anything she makes tastes so good), thank you Luba! She had served this salad for dinner one time and I couldn’t resist to not ask how she made it. If you like to try new salads this one should be on the to-make list! I love how easy it is to throw together from common ingredients and how close it is to the classic Ukrainian Potato Salad but with bacon.
