Loaded Potato Salad

It's Football Season and the Sunday Funday Bloggers are having a Tailgate Party.......
Our host for this fun event is Amy of Amy's Cooking Adventures.  Let's see what everyone brought to this party......

I started with Russet Potatoes and left the skins on because that is how I prefer my fully loaded. baked potatoes.  Not a potato skin person?  Feel free to peel your potatoes before or after cooking.

You can also make this recipe your own by adding whatever ingredients you like when making loaded potatoes.  I have sour cream, bacon, and cheese.  I didn't have any chives or green onions on hand or I would have certainly included them too.

This Loaded Potato Salad is sure to be a great side for whatever anyone else brings to your next tailgate or football party.
