A nice presentation for a potluck, in a pretty glass bowl. I made this for us at home and added in a half diced red bell pepper, and mixed it all together. It was super tasty.

This potato salad looks like it could be a meal all by itself if some leftover holiday ham was thrown in. Yum! I've never had potato salad with cheese before and I'm not sure how I feel about trying it but, this would be a great side dish to accompany any sandwiches when you're taking a break from cooking all of those holiday meals.

This is definitely not the way my Mother use to make her potato salad. This chunky potato salad looks very filling indeed. I like that the "dressing" is prepared and then tossed with the potatoes. I cannot wait to try this recipe.

This is an interesting take on potato salad. I must say, down south we love our potato salad but I have never heard of this. Will have to make a presentation without the title of potato salad to determine how it will go over. If it's a hit, I will give them the official name.

This is the potato salad to end all potato salads. I love the combination of mayo and sour cream. The lemon pepper adds an interesting flavor note, and how can you go wrong with bacon, cheddar cheese and hard boiled eggs. It truly is seven layers of fabulous flavor that is sure to please your family and friends.

so, did you try it?
