I make a version of your recipe but double up on the mayonnaise and eliminate the sour cream.  I use chopped romaine as my leafy green, and stir in some sliced red onion and dill pickle relish.  It's a nice alternative to regular potato salad.

I've never added bacon to my potato salad but I do use Baconnaise (bacon-flavored mayo) wnen making it.  So I can imagine BLT Potato Salad would be really tasty.
