"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."

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."

"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 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!
