Cheese Potato Salad

A summer BBQ is never complete without a round of yummy sides! This Cheese Potato Salad is perfect for those outdoor entertaining occasions. 

I know there are sooo many yummy recipes for Potato Salad (check out my Dutch Potato Salad) and I think this one is pretty spectacular. It’s easy to make and always receives rave reviews. I love to put a big heaping pile on my plate beside my hotdog or hamburger. 

You can buy already made Potato Salad at the grocery, but I don’t think it compares to a homemade version. Take a little extra time and make it at home instead. You’ll be happy with the final result!

Cheese Potato Salad Ingredients

Potato Salad can include a whole range of ingredients. The one key element in every recipe, though, is the boil potatoes. 

In this Cheese Potato Salad, you’ll find boiled potatoes (obviously) as well as hard boiled eggs, celery, green olives and green onions.

The creamy dressing to cover the salad is a mixture of sour cream, Italian salad dressing, cottage cheese and salt. Easy peasy!

Can You Make Potato Salad the Day Before?

Yes, you can make Potato Salad the day before. All you need to do is to make sure to cover it and refrigerate it till you are ready to serve to your guests. 

How Long Will Potato Salad Keep in the Fridge?

I wouldn’t keep it any longer than three to four days in the fridge. After that, put any remaining salad in the compost. Hopefully, everyone will eat it before that happens though!
