I bought the hubs a Traeger Smoker and he made these amazing “baked” potatoes on it and I started thinking how tasty those would be in a potato salad so for 4th of July I decided to give it a whirl and it was delicious!
3/4 cups light mayonnaise
3/4 cup fat free sour cream
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup Ranch dressing
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon celery seed
8 russet potatoes, rubbed with olive oil and sea salt, smoked and diced, leave unpeeled (you can use any kind of potatoes you like and cook them any way you like)
2 – 4 celery stalks, diced
1 onion, diced
1 – 2 handfuls of bacon crumbles
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
5 hard boiled eggs, diced
1 bunch green onions, diced
1 In a large bowl, mix together mayo, sour cream, vinegar, Ranch, mustard, salt, pepper and celery seeds. Add potatoes to mixture and stir until coated.
2 Add celery, onion, bacon and cheese and stir then stir in eggs. Chill 1 hour before serving.
3 Garnish with green onions before serving.
