simple potato saladIf you’re looking for an easy side dish to bring to a bbq or dinner at your house, this simple potato salad recipe could do the trick! Just 4 ingredients and just simply perfect with burgers or to bring to a potluck. Here’s how you make it.

Yes, just 4 ingredients…that is my kind of recipe! My philosophy is if I don’t have it at the house already, or I can’t find it really easily at the grocery store I’m just not gonna’ make it.

I love having an easy side dish recipe like this one or our salt n pepper zucchini chips to bring to a bbq or serve along side a main dish at home. Finding a dish that includes veggies is a plus too.

You just need red potatoes (you could use another but the taste and texture of these are a favorite of ours), sour cream, a few spices and bacon makes everything better in our opinion so that goes in too.

Of course you can load it up with other veggies if you like celery or lots of onions, it is totally up to you but this is the basic easy potato salad recipe you can tweak to your liking.

Whether you keep it simple or make it loaded with lots of goodies it is a great potato salad recipe. I usually use whatever I have on hand when it comes to potato and pasta salads but it’s nice to have an easy base to build off of. It’s a dish that is hearty, tasty, and will save well if you have any leftovers (doubtful) too.

Great the next day if you do, and perfect to add some of your leftover ham to after Easter or Christmas!!
