Loaded Baked Potato Salad Recipe

This recipe is one I found on Pinterest and I knew I had to try it! My family loves Mustard Potato Salad and German Potato Salad, so why not Loaded Baked Potato Salad?

Loaded Baked Potato Salad


  • 8 large baking potatoes
  • 3/4 cup ranch dressing (I used my own allergy-friendly dressing since my little ones are dairy free)
  • 1/2 cup diced green onions
  • 16 slices bacon
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (we use Daiya for our dairy free kiddos)
  • salt & pepper to taste


  1. Wash potatoes well, then dice into small cubes.
  2. Drizzle about 2 tbsp. of olive oil onto each of two cookie sheets.
  3. Distribute potatoes evenly between the two cookie sheets.
  4. Place in 400 degree oven for about 30 minutes or until potatoes are crisp-tender. Roasting rather than boiling the potatoes helps to ensure that they retain their shape and you will not end up with mashed potato salad.
  5. While potatoes are roasting, cook all bacon and set aside.
  6. Shred cheese, if necessary, and measure out 1 cup. Set aside to use as a topping at the table, or add all to the mix if your family has no allergies!
  7. Mix all ingredients together, and serve while warm.

Be sure to let me know if you try this recipe and if you make any additions or omissions. I love to re-make a dish to suit our family, so I hope you will take on that challenge as well!
