Loaded Baked Potato Salad

Loaded Baked Potato Salad
Father's Day is quickly approaching and I have already been thinking about recipes! Since Father's Day is also the first day of summer the ideas have kind of been merging and with that in mind I had a perfect recipe, a loaded baked potato salad that is prefect both for summer and for dad! I first came across the idea for a loaded baked potato salad (not to be confused with a loaded baked potato potato salad) on Lemon Tree Dwelling and I pinned it right away because I am always looking for salads for dinner recipe ideas for the summer and this one is great! The baked potato part of this salad comes from the baked potato 'chips' and continues with the loaded baked potato flavours with the cheddar cheese, bacon, green onions and a sour cream and chive based dressing. This salad is super easy to make and it is sure to satisfy dad with all of his favourite baked potato flavours!

I think my dad would have loved this salad. It's very manly with the bacon and potatoes. The dressing to me reminds me of a Green Goddess dressing. I liked that the potatoes were baked. I think that's much healthier than fried. I'm not crazy about the egg though. It's not Kosher to have runny eggs. I prefer my eggs cooked, but that's just me. Other people on here seem to like the runny eggs. Great recipe.
