Cheesy Potato Salad – Mix it up with a non-traditional potato salad

Why not mix it up by trying another potato salad recipe instead of a “traditional” potato salad recipe.  While I still enjoy my traditional potato salad, this has become one of my favorites, it reminds me of a baked potato with cheese and bacon and sour cream goodness.  Enjoy!


  • 2 1/2 pounds red potatoes, cubed
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 bunch green onions, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 5 slices of bacon, crumbled
  • 2 stalks celery, diced


  1. Place the potatoes into a pot, and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook for about 10 minutes, or until easily pierced with a fork. Drain, and set aside to cool.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the sour cream, mayonnaise, half of the onions, and half of the cheese. Gently stir in the cooled potatoes. Top with remaining cheese and onions, and sprinkle bacon bits over the top.

    • Hi there! Thank you very much! I personally have only made chicken or steak or hamburgers with potato salad. I’m not sure why I never eat potatoes with fish, but I’m sure it would go just as well – it is probably just a personal preference. I hope you are enjoying beautiful weather! Have a great day.

  1. Thank you for offering up a unique potato salad. That stuff from the deli section of the grocery store does not cut it anymore. Wonderful texture and flavor contrasts, great presentation.
