Loaded Baked Potato Salad Recipe

We made this for a family BBQ last night- original recipe can be found here. I made a few changes- I used ready bacon bits, only 8 ounces of sour cream, and russet potatoes. I've found that they fall apart so much I don't need nearly as much dressing as a potato salad recipe normally calls for- they make their own creaminess. Enjoy! This can be warmed in the oven, or chilled if you have the time (which we didn't.)

Loaded Baked Potato Salad

Ingredients:
12 russet potatoes, cubed and boiled

Sauce
(mix together and fold into potatoes):
8 ounces sour cream
3/4 cup mayonnaise
a squirt of ranch dressing if you want
1/4 tsp pepper
salt to taste

Fold in:
(reserve a little of each to sprinkle on top)
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
6 green onions, chopped
bacon (either 6 slices, cooked and crumbled, or bacon bits)

Spread in a 9x13 pan and top with reserved goodies. Either warm in a 350 degree oven 15 minutes, or chill in fridge.
