Chilling Time1 hr

Cooking Time15 min

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds small red potatoes
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • 4 hard boiled eggs, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 green onions, chopped, including some of the light green tops
  • 2 strips bacon, cooked, drained and chopped finely
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped parsley

Instructions

  1. Cut potatoes into halves or quarters, depending on their size. Place in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, then cook on medium for 12 15 minutes test to see that they are cooked but not falling apart. Drain well and cool while preparing remaining ingredients.

  2. Make the dressing by combining mayonnaise, sour cream, celery salt and salt and pepper.

  3. In a large bowl, toss potatoes with about half of the dressing. Smooth the potatoes into an even layer and add remaining ingredients in layers: celery, eggs, green onion. Top with about half the bacon and half the parsley, then spread remaining dressing on top and sprinkle with reserved bacon and parsley to garnish.

  4. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour or up to 1 day before serving.

Oh my! This is amazing! I love bacon in potato salad. The only thing this recipe needs is more bacon. I would double the amount next time. I love the addition of cheese. The celery gives it a nice crunch.

I forgot to mention that everyone in my family loved this. This is a dish to take to a potluck. Everyone loves potato salad and this one is a really good one. And it is even better a day after it is made so all the flavors have more time to blend together.

When I first read this recipe I thought cheese in potato salad? Ewwwww! But, after seeing the deconstructed baked potato comparison...it sounds amazing, and something I really need to try. I do wonder though...would it be ok to substitute Greek yogurt instead of sour cream? Personally, I think they kinda taste similar except yogurt isn't as runny as sour cream and is much better for you.

I've never heard of layering a potato salad before this. It looks amazing and so colorful. I love the idea of bacon layered in there too. I love mayo and sour cream mixed together in just about anything. I can't wait to make this the next time I have a gathering. I see someone else added red pepper. Has anyone else added another surprise ingredient?

If you have not already made this Seven Layer Potato Salad you really do not know what you are missing! We had a big barbecue for family and friends over this Easter weekend and so made this as a side dish. Well it was the one thing that everyone commented on. Very tasty and with lovely surprising flavors like the crunchy bits of bacon and we also tossed in some red pepper and a few chopped herbs from the garden which were a very nice addition. Enjoy!

This is a beautiful salad if there is such a thing. I love all the layers and all the ways the different layers taste. I don't put cheddar or bacon in my regular potato salad recipe, but I know my family will love it. My aunt's potato salad recipe had sour cream and it was wonderful.

Probably the best potato salad I've ever had- there were so many flavors and the texture was perfect!

This was a really tasty potato salad, perfect for summer barbeques!

Loved ALL of the flavors in this potato salad recipe. There wasn't a single thing I'd take out, or add for that matter! Perfectly dressed and with big chunks of potato, this was possibly the best potato salad I've ever had!

I don't like potato salads that have a lot of mayonnaise, but this one was tangy and fresh tasting. The green onions were a nice touch for sure

Amazing flavor! I don't normally enjoy potato salad but this one is very tasty.

I'm usually not a big fan of deli salads, but I loved this one! It had just the right balance of wet and dry ingredients that was particularly appealing.

This potato salad was tasty!
