This is a simple and delicious creamy-style potato salad that can be made in about 30 minutes. Serve chilled with your favorite grilled meats for a well-rounded cookout experience.


Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Place peeled, washed, and sliced potatoes in a large pot of salted water and boil for about 20 to 22 minutes, or until tender.

  3. While potatoes are boiling, cook bacon until crisp. Transfer to a large plate lined with paper towel and let drain. Allow bacon to cool for 5 to 6 minutes before crumbling.

  4. Once potatoes are cooked, drain and place into an ice bath for 10 to 15 minutes, remove, drain again, and cut into smaller cubes.

  5. In a large plastic or glass bowl combine mayonnaise, dill pickle, sour cream, garlic, green onion, bacon, salt, and black pepper. Add potatoes and toss to coat.

  6. Transfer to a serving dish, cover with plastic wrap and place into the refrigerator for 2 hours before serving.


  • Store leftover potato salad in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
