Easy Loaded Baked Potato Salad
Easy loaded baked potato salad is a guaranteed crowd pleaser that you can make when your crowd comes home, or you are out to a BBQ, picnic or other community gathering. Your friends and family will crow about the flavor this simple recipe offers. This recipe loads the potato salad with lots of bacon, cheese, veggies and other ingredients to make a sweet and salty salad that everyone will want to taste. It is also very attractive, especially if you float some of the ingredients on top of the salad, such as the chives, cheese, or bacon (or a mixture of all three ingredients).
This salad does not specify what kind of potatoes to use, and just about any will do. Yukon Gold potatoes are not always available, but they do have great taste and wonderful golden color. New red potatoes are always a favorite because they cook up quickly and do not need to be peeled, creating a great time saver. Whichever potato salad you choose, they will go well with all of the ingredients in this recipe.
Sometimes you worry about eating so much fat, especially the saturated fats found in items such as bacon, or hidden fats, such as you might find in commercial mayonnaise, among other ready made sauces. These fats can be avoided, or at least reduced. In this recipe, reduced fat mayonnaise is used. Or, make your own mayonnaise from scratch, from a simple blend of grape seed oil and fresh lemons. Bacon can be cooked quite crisp to remove as much fat as possible, and patted dry before adding it to the salad. Or, try a turkey bacon or even a smoked tofu bacon to see if people even notice the difference. Any way you make it, this is a quick to make—and quicker to disappear—summer salad that you will make often.Find out how to make this recipe and many others at the website, Six Sister's Stuff.
