The potatoes will absorb whatever liquid you put on them. To make the potato salad ahead of time add 2 tablespoons of milk to half of the dressing to thin it out. Pour that half the dressing on the potatoes and save back the bacon. When ready to serve, add the remainder of the dressing and the bacon.
