Loaded Baked Potato Salad 

During the summer, we tend to grill out practically every night that it isn’t raining!

We tend to eat a potato dish, green vegetable, and sometimes a salad with each meal.

One favorite, is Baked Potato Salad, and it’s great for potlucks or taking to barbecues too!

Loaded Baked Potato Salad Ingredients

The best part is that it’s really easy to make, double (or more) if needed, and people always ask for the recipe, so I thought I’d share it here, so it’s easy to point them right to it.

This Loaded Baked Potato Salad Recipe has also become a hit as a side dish at many holiday gatherings, such as Easter Dinner, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Dinner, and Christmas Dinner.

It’s my go to Potato Salad Recipe for all occasions!

Loaded Baked Potato Salad 


  • You can use your choice of potato, but I prefer Russet Baking Potatoes, because, well, it’s BAKED POTATO salad.
  • Since the oven is already on, bake your bacon in the oven while you wait for the potatoes to cool down. Just place the bacon on an aluminum foil lined baking tray and cook at 400 degrees  for about 15 minutes or until your desired crispness.
  • You can substitute chives for the green onions (or leave them out altogether. I have weird allergies, I’m allergic to onions!)
  • I use full fat sour cream in this recipe, BUT you can use low fat sour cream or even substitute non-fat Greek yogurt for that added tang.
  • You can also add a bit of cream cheese for added twang.
