Cook bacon in a heavy nonstick skillet over medium high heat 7-8 minutes, turning occasionally until just crisp. Drain on paper towels. Crumble and set aside. Discard all but 1/4 cup bacon drippings.

Add potatoes to skillet. Season with garlic salt and seasoned pepper to taste and sauté 25-30 minutes over medium high heat, stirring occasionally until golden and crisp.

Meanwhile, combine next 6 ingredients in a small bowl. Mix thoroughly and set aside. Place lettuce in a large salad bowl. When potatoes are cooked, immediately add to lettuce and toss. Add flaked salmon, chopped cooked eggs, capers, dressing and salt and pepper to taste. Toss to combine.
