Tips & Tricks on how to make the Loaded Baked Potato Salad Recipe:

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • To save time you can buy cubed cheddar cheese. Provolone cheese is also great in this recipe.
  • To save time you can use pre-cooked bacon.
  • The salad can be stored in the fridge in an air tight container for 2-3 days.
