What could be better for your next potluck, barbecue, or party than a hearty and flavorful potato salad? Even better, how about a potato salad that is reminiscent of a steakhouse favorite? This potato salad recipe is simple to put together. The crumbled bacon on top makes for an inviting presentation. This is sure to become a new favorite side dish among your friends and family!

Although this potato salad is called loaded baked potato salad, you are not actually required to bake the potatoes. It has all the flavor of loaded baked potatoes, but you still boil the potatoes as you would traditionally do when making potato salad.

This potato salad uses red potatoes. I don’t peel them. I just wash them and remove any eyes and then cut them up. Skipping the peeling process shaves quite a bit of time off the prep time in making this salad,

While this is a quick and easy potato salad to make, it does require time in the refrigerator for it to chill. Allow this to set up in the refrigerator for a minimum of 2 hours. However, it is even better if you can leave it in the refrigerator overnight. It gives it more time for the flavors to meld.

    Your Loaded Baked Potato salad sounds amazing. I love the idea of potato salad with bacon and cheese! By the way, I think we may have the same casserole dish! Does yours have a lid as well? Mine belonged to my mother, and is my absolute favourite casserole in the whole world.
