Reviews for Loaded Baked Potato Salad
"I made this salad with high expectations. Was disappointed, my daughter liked it but my grandaughter didn't like it at all. Thought maybe it would taste better warm. Gave it to my daughter to take home."
"This is the best potato salad I have ever made. I did scale it down to 10 servings and it was still delicious. Thanks Jackie for the awesome recipe."
"This potato salad was excellent! I'll definitely be making it again. The recipe does make a lot, so it's great to take as a dish to BBQs. I didn't have pickles on hand, but I put in a tablespoon or so of dill weed instead."
"to Imapoorcook,LOVE that suggestion heck even makes sense to mecan't wait to make thisjkh62, you're funny :)ok made tonight for dindin--great recipe"
"never tasted so goooood"
"I've been making a similar recipe for years. This one is very good, and we will be making it again."
"We tried this, and we loved it as an alternative to our regular standby potato salad! We loved the flavors!"
"I am excited to find this recipe because I have wanted to try making a loaded baked potato salad. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because I have not made it yet. I probably won't put the dill pickle in when I do make it...that just doesn't go with a loaded baked potato to me. All the other ingredients fit."
"Worlds best potato salad!! A huge hit! Definitely worth all the prep it requires!"
"To 4-days----I make potato with dill pickle relish and also with yellow mustard and sometimes with dijon mustard. I live in Ga and we kind of like things a little bit tangy. Some people use sweet pickle relish instead of dill relish."
"My grandmother always mashed the potatoes, in her potato salad. It was a different twist and very good."
"Haven't tried but have a question. I love "loaded baked potatoes" but have never put a pickle on them. Sounds strange to me but want to know if anyone has tried it with out the pickle. Still taste ok?"
"I love all the ingredients except the mustard. I havent made this yet but I would never put mustard in potato salad. Im from PA and the best is a sweet and sour type of dressing. I will use AC vinegar."
"Don't you just love it when people add, delete, substitute, modify and then "rate" a recipe??"
"I've made this many times, only instead of sour cream I use bottled ranch dressing. I had used sour cream previously, and it did lack flavor for my taste. I get rave reviews with the ranch dressing/mayo combo. I use green onions instead of a sweet onion."
"As noted by other viewers, the first time I made it, it did lack flavor. Second time around I did things different and BOY did the recipe pop! I kept all the ingredients but changed the sauce. 1 cup Miracle whip, 1 cup sour cream, 1 packet Hidden Valley ranch mix and thinned out with half cup of half and half. Fantastic! Try It!"
"I, too, had very high hopes for this recipe--it has a great list of ingredients. But we didn't love it. There is something just a bit off in the dressing. As another reviewer commented, more dressing is needed to coat the quantity of potatoes, but I'm wondering if the problem for our tastes is that the mayo kind of negates the special flavor of the sour cream? I'm just not sure, but while this recipe isn't bad, it just isn't as wonderful as I'd imagined it might be."
"I don't know why some reviewers said this had no flavor. I wonder if they made any changes to the recipe? I enjoyed all these ingredients together as did my boyfriend. We will make this again for sure!"
"I really had high hopes for this but it was dry and the flavors never really came together. People ate it but nobody raved about it. It took way too long to be this mediocre."
"The ingredients are all things that my family likes however together the texture and tastes were confusing....we were not a fan of this recipe and I ended up dumping it."
"I did modify it,a little.I used a half teaspoon of the colman's dry mustard in the dressing instead of the prepared.I used applewood smoked bacon and half of the hard boiled eggs required.It was perfect.:)"
"Without question,delicious.It could be a meal in itself.I did not add the pickle but I think it would be even better with it.Follow the directions exactly.Everyone loves it.Thank you so much."
"The taste was good but I had to make an extra half recipe of the dressing to keep it from being too dry."
"awesome potato salad"
"This potato salad was a huge hit at camp!! I had several requests for the recipe"
"Made this one night for my family and they absolutely adored it! Made it again for party at my gym and they love it there too! Delicious!"
"I made this for a family gathering and it was a hit. I received several requests for the receipe."
"The previous poster was correct, please don't try to hold these over to the second day. However it is very good when freshly made."
"amazing potato salad"
"Made this for Memorial Day and everyone commented on how good it was. Will be making again. I did omit the dill pickles because I didn't have any on hand."
"my husband and son loved this as well. I omitted the dill pickles per husbands request, but added a little celery seed"
"great potato salad, I added a half tsp granulated garlic, a tsp of parsley flakes, and a pinch of paprika (for color). Will add this one to my favorites...thank you"
"This potato salad tasted great freshly made but do NOT make the mistake of trying to save time by making it the night before. I made this recipe the night before a BBQ and that was a huge mistake. The next morning, even after adding more mayo sauce, it came out dry tasting and no longer had the rich flavor it had teh night before. Make this recipe same day and eat same day. But yeah it was really good freshly made."
"I am excited to try this recipe, it sounds really yummy but I was wondering if you chill it in the refrigerator before serving?"
"Everyone loved this. To make it a little quicker I add dill pickle relish instead of pickles. Everyone wants the recipe."
"It's so good, I ate 6 servings! Definitely a keeper."
"Two great big thumbs up! I made this years ago using recipe from Taste of Home. I have not made this for quite some time. I believe that magazine was recycled by accident. I tried to remember how to make it a few times. But it was never as good as the original. The potatoes are in the oven right now! I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!"
"I made this potato salad and took it to our family 4thh of July picnic. Everyone loved it and I have already passed the recipe along to alot of people who "had to have" it!!!"
"love LOVE LOOOOVE this recipe...everyone always asks me to bring this. I season the potatoes with Mrs Dash onion & herb, garlic & herb, and Natures seasonings, along with the salt & pepper. I also use fat-free sour cream, low-fat mayo, and reduced fat cheese to try to cut down on the fat & calories some, and there is absolutely no effect on flavor-its still great! (I also use more pickles than listed and I add about 3 to 4 tablespoons of pickle juice to the salad)"
"I made this Potato salad for Father's Day and it was a hit. I loved the various flavors that blended togther into one dish. My only problem was the potatoes took longer to cook than stated. Will definitely make again."
"My husband and 2 kids are picky eaters, but we all loved this recipe. I used 2 cups of salad dressing instead of mayo. and extra mustard. This recipe is delicious and will be filed in my box."
"Just keep in mind this is very heavy with the sour cream and mayo compared to your typical potato salad. Actually it's like eating a stuffed potato. I absolutely loved it though and have filed it in my recipe box."
"The first time I make a recipe as written and then maybe adjust to taste...BUT I would NOT change anything. This is a very good potato salad. I last took the dish to my woman's club mtg and about everyone just raved about it!"
"I love this recioe. I made it for my family and they loved it, even the 3 year olds. So i tried it at a large family gathering and everyone loved it. I even had my Aunt request that I make it for her as a Birthday present. This recipe is well worth the time involved."
