All-American Loaded Baked Potato Salad

This is a great twist on two all-American favourites–the potato salad and the loaded baked potato. Served cold, this has been a crowd-pleaser at our many family functions and is often requested. Even people who don’t normally love potato salad seem to love this!


  • 6 cups cubed russet potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup creamy salad dressing (such as Miracle Whip®)
  • ½ teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup chopped green onions
  • ½ cup real bacon bits
  • Step 1Place potatoes in a pot; fill with water until potatoes are covered. Add salt; bring to boil. Simmer until potatoes are just tender enough to be pierced with a fork, about 15 minutes. Drain and run under cold water until potatoes are slightly cool.
  • Step 2Mix sour cream, creamy salad dressing, and ground black pepper together in a large bowl. Stir in Cheddar cheese, green onion, and bacon bits; add potatoes. Cover and chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
