TCG Recipe of the Month: Easy Loaded Baked Potato Salad

This recipe is inspired by one of our favourite finger foods–loaded potato skins. A common pub or appetizer food, mini or russet potatoes get their fillings scooped out and then loaded back up with a delicious accompaniment of bacon, sour cream, chives, and cheese.  It is a heavenly and satisfying comfort food.

This salad combines all of those irresistible ingredients into one big bowl that can be dished up alongside your favourite meat and veg combination.  The salad has a crunchy bite and a tangy but creamy finish thanks to the Greek yogurt and chives.  Plus, who doesn’t love bacon with their dinner?

This is a simple dish that comes together very quickly.  It is a great salad for a fall party, backyard barbeque, or to bring to a potluck as it packs easily and tastes great heated up or served cold.

 

TIP:  If you want to make this recipe even more efficient, microwave the potatoes rather than baking them (make sure you pierce the skin with a fork first) and use store-bought natural bacon bits!
