Loaded Baked Potato Salad

Summer is officially here!!! Are you already sick of the same boring lunch? Kick it up a notch by adding Loaded Baked Potato Salad into the mix!

Let’s face it, the same sandwich every day, even if you switch it up a bit can get a little mundane. As a Mom, I do my best to keep a variety of items handy for school lunches, picnics, pool days, and BBQ’s. One of my all time favorite sides is a good potato salad. With there being so many to choose from in the stores, I began to think of all the ways I could make my own and incorportate different items.

This potato salad pairs well with just about anything. It is so quick and spimple to make, and best of all, includes bacon!!! Your guests will be begging for the recipe!

During a recent food shopping trip, I noticed that Simply Potatoes® doesn’t just make the delicicious hash browns my family has grown to love, but they also have diced potatoes! It was a total ah-ha moment for me. Diced potatoes, that I don’t have to boil and cut for my potato salads? Grab a bag (or two) and sign me up!!!

I personally love a bit of onion in my potato salad, so I grabbed the diced potatoes with onion variety. I cooked the potatoes as per the label, fried up a package of bacon and snuck a few pieces for me and a few for the dog. She loves bacon and since you only need about 9-12 slices for this recipe, you can share the rest.

I let my potatoes cool in a bowl and then added all of my other ingredients. Sour cream, mayo, cheddar cheese, chives, and of course, the bacon! Since we had company this weekend, it was a perfect addition to our Sunday lunch by the pool.

    Needed to draft you the little bit of observation so as to give thanks over again on the marvelous guidelines you’ve shared at this time. It is simply incredibly open-handed with people like you to convey freely all most people could possibly have sold for an e book to get some dough for themselves, even more so considering the fact that you might have done it if you desired. Those thoughts also worked like the great way to recognize that many people have the same zeal just like my very own to know the truth very much more on the topic of this issue. I am sure there are several more pleasant times in the future for individuals that look into your blog post.
