1 tsp. salt1/2 tsp. ground black pepper

1 cup chopped celery

2. Cook bacon until crisp, cool, then break into 1/2 pieces.
3. Whisk dressing ingredients in a large bowl until blended. Add the warm potatoes, celery, onion, and sweet pickles and mix gently. Let cool (cover and refrigerate at this point if making it ahead of time).
4. To serve: Line large platter with romaine and top with potato salad. Sprinkle with the bacon and tomatoes.
