Loaded Baked Potato Salad Recipe Tips

  • Firstly, don’t over bake your potatoes. If you have some over baked potatoes on hand, make smashed potatoes instead. They will crumble and make for a messy salad.
  • Also, you don’t need to peel the potatoes if you are using organic potatoes. Just make sure to wash and scrub them well before baking.
  • If you have time to plan ahead, you can use my recipe for Slow Cooker Baked Potatoes.
  • You can use any dressing you want. I especially love this recipe with either Blue Cheese or Ranch salad dressing.
  • In addition, to save time you can buy cubed cheddar cheese. Provolone cheese is also great in this recipe.
  • Same applies to pre-cooked bacon.
  • The salad can be stored in the fridge in an air tight container for 2-3 days.
