    Love this, you won't know that this is a low fat version. I like to change it up by using Greek Yogurt instead of mayo.

    Love it, made only 1/2 batch and this is a keeper for sure! However, used light mayo, fat free greek yogurt instead of reduced fat sour cream, reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese and a tsp. of pickle juice.

    Baking the potatoes really brings a different flavor to the salad. A welcome change from the traditional.

    My family never met a potato salad they didn't like but are leary of reduced calorie or fat offerings. They loved this recipe. It tasted rich and delicious. I have had the original version and this is just as tasty.

    This was really easy to make, and it was very, very good! Even my 4-year old liked it. I used fat free everything and 2% cheese in mine with regular bacon since there were only 2 slices in it. Delicious! It makes a lot, though, so unless you want lots of leftovers or you're having a barbecue with friends or something, you'll probably want to half the recipe.

    This is an excellent recipe! I have made it many times with bacon but tonight, I didn't have any turkey bacon so I heated up some Canadian bacon and put it in the potato salad. It was a very good!

    I served it warm and it was soooo delish! I got comments that I should open my own restaurant. :)
