I love pasta salad, and it’s so versatile. You basically boil some pasta, throw in some veggies, and add a dressing. Right? Well…that hasn’t worked out so well for me in the past. I just couldn’t get it quite right. Until now!
Potato salad is one of those things I kind of have to be in the mood to eat. Until now. I think I could eat this as a side almost every day! Yes, it was that good! I made this for my family’s 4th of July cookout.
‘Lightened Up’ Loaded Potato Salad
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
8-10 slices cooked turkey bacon, crumbled
6 ounces shredded cheddar cheese, divided (reduced fat to cut calories)
3 green onions, sliced
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1 dash celery salt (can also use seasoning salt)
1 dash garlic powder
1 dash paprika (or cayenne pepper)
- Gently stir together all the ingredients in a large bowl, reserving a little cheddar, green onion and bacon for garnish.
- Transfer to a serving dish.
- Top with reserved shredded cheddar, green onion slices and bacon. Can be served immediately while still warm, or made ahead of time and served cold. It was good both ways!
