Easy Loaded Baked Potato Salad

"This is a recipe I came up with as an alternative to regular potato salad. That was my pre-"zaar" days. I saw that there were several others posted, however none looked this easy. It is a winner every time and there are never any leftovers."

  1. This is a very nice twist on a summer favorite. I took the advice of some other readers and used 1/2 sour cream, 1/2 mayo, and just for fun, added in a little ranch dressing. Tastes best after a few hours in the fridge - would be great to do the day before a backyard BBQ. My family loved it!
  2. i enjoyed this recipe. I followed the advice of other reviews about adding 1/2 sour cream and 1/2 mayo. It was wonderful. I would recommend this recipe to anyone looking for something different.
  3. I had to make different kind of potato salad for my sometimes picky husband because he doesn't like traditional potato salad with mayo and pickle relish. When I found this recipe, I knew it would be the right recipe for him since I know how he loves loaded baked potatoes and baked potato soup. Sure enough, I was right because he loved it and so did I. I did use fresh or real bacon. I also didn't use half sour cream and half mayo which most reviewers suggested. I figured since my husband and I both love all the flavors of a baked potato, I didn't see how I could go wrong and I was right. The salad was perfect. I have also made this by using roasted potatoes which also works out very well.
  4. Terrific recipe...I followed another reviewer's suggestion and did a 1:3 mayo to sour cream. Delicious with BBQ ribs. Made for the Easy Does It event in Cooking Photos.
  5. This was soo good..made it with a Rib recipe I found on here. I did take others advivce and did the half sour cream and half mayo...will be making this ALOT!!! Thanks for sharing this recipe!!


  1. I used only 1/2 fat sour cream and it was fab! substituted the bacon for chicken frankfurters, and my picky foodie son and hubby loved it! Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it says 12 mins cooking time. But that's how long it takes to boil the potatoes not taking into account how long it took to get the water boiling. So it was more like 20 mins. Really clever idea will definitely be making it again!
