Summertime is synonymous with BBQs by the pool and that means a generous amount of potato salad, macaroni salad, and pasta salads in our refrigerator! I have made a lot of potato salads in my day and I have to say this one takes the cake! This Loaded Potato Salad with Crispy Bacon is the best potato salad!
What makes this bacon potato salad super special is the combination of crispy bacon, freshly grated cheddar cheese, and fresh green onions to give it freshness. Then the combination of both sour cream and mayonnaise gives it that extra creaminess. I love to use seasoned salt and cracked pepper for an extra zing of flavor.
