Loaded Baked Potato Salad

On Saturday morning, my husband decided we were having hot dogs for dinner. It had been a long time since we ate hot dogs, because we usually save those for summertime. So I was all for it.

As dinner time rolled around, I wanted to make us a nice side dish. So I thought a potato salad would be perfect. But I didn’t want just any potato salad. I wanted something a little different. Since we’re all such fans of the loaded baked potato flavor, I decided a Loaded Baked Potato Salad would be perfect.

Loaded Baked Potato Salad

  • 1 lb. potatoes, diced
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 3/4 c. sour cream
  • 1/2 c. mayonnaise
  • 1/4 c. Ranch dressing
  • 1 T. vinegar
  • 1 c. shredded cheese
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/4 c. sliced green onions
  • Additional salt and pepper, to taste

1. Toss the diced potatoes with olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Spread on a baking sheet or in a casserole dish and bake at 400 degrees for 20-30 minutes, until tender. Stir a few times while cooking.

2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together sour cream, mayonnaise, Ranch dressing and vinegar. Add the potatoes and toss to coat. Refrigerate until serving, at least 30 minutes.

3. Just before serving, stir in cheese, bacon, green onions and salt and pepper to taste.

  1. Was there any leftover? I was wondering how it was the second day? you know how things need to meld together sometimes – for flavor purposes.

    Sounds really, really good. I’ll have to try it sometime.

  2. Wow! This looks sooooo good! I have a recipe on my blog for Loaded Baked Potato Soup, but I had never heard of Loaded Baked Potato Salad! Can’t wait to add this to my menu!

  3. This is really tasty, but there’s way too much dressing. I doubled the potatoes, used only about 3/4 the amount of mayo and sour cream called for in the recipe, and replaced the bottled ranch dressing with ranch dressing mix (the powder), and there’s still a lot of extra dressing in the bowl.
