When I was younger, I wasn’t a huge potato salad fan. Even my Mom’s, and she went the whole route with homemade mayonnaise and everything. But I appreciate it more, now, and I especially appreciate it when its a lot easier than Mom’s. And I appreciate it when it’s this creamy, Classic Potato Salad, Instant Pot or Not.
I gotta say I’ve never been a huge fan of out standard American potato salad. Of course, that never stops me from eating it if I’m at a barbecue or potluck, but sometimes I wish there was something a little different. Something that wakes up the taste buds. Something a little special. This White & Sweet Potato Salad with Chutney Dressing is all that and more!
It seems I’m all about the summer party recipes, lately, not my typical everyday fare! (See the explanation marks? That proves it!) And this Loaded Baked Potato Salad is definitely one. Heck, it’s a party in a bowl.
Have you ever had a really good homemade German Potato Salad? Even if you haven’t, you might have seen it at the store, maybe at the deli, and possibly depending on where you live, in a can! If you’ve tried any of those products (no offense to whoever is making them) you might not really “get” what German Potato Salad is. It really has to be homemade to be good.
Anyone that knows me in real life that I’m not the biggest Ranch dressing fan. As far as this Bacon Ranch Potato Salad? I have my lil’ sis (who I no longer consider evil for suggesting such a salad knowing I’m not a Ranch fan) to thank because I gotta tell ya, I love this potato salad! And so do the folks (my favorite octogenarians) who jumped on this like there was no tomorrow.
