Loaded Baked Potato Salad

What goes great with grilled meats and hot weather??? You guessed it! Potato salad!! I really love the traditional potato salads with egg and mayo and pickle but it is time consuming and sometimes you just need a change. A loaded baked potato salad can be as simple as boiling your potatoes, cutting and chilling them, then adding everything you put on a loaded baked potato – sour cream, green onions, bacon, cheddar cheese, or whatever else you like. Here’s my version of this summer favorite.
