Potato Salad Recipes

Potato salad is one of my favorite foods!

It is one of those meal items that can be varied in so many ways.

Usually, I just add mayo, lots of hard boiled eggs, dill and pickles.
It is how I've made it for years and years.  I love to sneak a little
bowl of it while it is still warm!  Yum!!

Sometimes you just need to vary things a bit, so I went to one
 of my favorite food websites and did a search of potato salad
 recipes.  Lots to choose from!  

My choice to feature is this "No Bake" Bake Potato Salad
 since baked potatoes are another favorite!  

The photo comes from Mr. Food's website.


  • medium potatoes (about 3 pounds), 
  • scrubbed and cut into 1-inch chunks

  • 1 tablespoon salt

  • (16-ounce) container sour cream

  • 1/4 cup real bacon bits

  • scallions (green onions), thinly sliced

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


Place potatoes in a large pot and add enough water to cover them. 
Add salt and bring to a boil over high heat. 

Cook potatoes 10 to 15 minutes, or until fork-tender; 
drain well and allow to cool slightly.

In a large bowl, combine remaining ingredients; mix well. 
Add potatoes and mix until well combined.  

Serve warm, or cover and chill until ready to serve.

Homemade potato salad is one of my favorite as well...and I make mine with sour cream as well. It makes it so much lighter and creamier. I never though of adding bacon bits, but I will next time....thank you for the idea :)

I may start using sour cream and a little mayo in my regular potato salad recipe to make it lighter.

Bacon makes everything better :)

These versions are excellent.
