Warm Potato and Artichoke Salad with Bacon Dressing

Warm Potato and Artichoke Salad with Bacon Dressing is a variation of an old Mennonite recipe using green beans.  One can never have too many recipes for potato salad.

Try it with cooked green beans or asparagus in place of the artichoke hearts.  Warm Potato and Artichoke Salad with Bacon Dressing makes a satisfying accompaniment to grilled salmon, chicken, or pork chops.  As far as I am concerned, one can never have too many recipes for potato salad.
