From: Diabetic Living Magazine

Most people think of potato salad as a cold side dish reserved for picnics or barbecues. Not this one! This hearty recipe pairs potatoes and onions in a slow cooker, where they cook until tender. Served warm and topped with chunks of cooked turkey bacon, this easy side dish is lovely served on a bed of baby spinach.

Sliced my potatoes like the picture instead of cubing as the directions had said. I forgot the bacon but it still turned out well! :)
