Jalapeño Potato Salad: Kickin’ & Creamy Like Poppers

I’m all about serving potato salad for parties. Whether it’s a summer BBQ, tailgating or a potluck – it seems like potato salad just makes the cut. People go nuts for it and there are so many different variations. This Jalapeño Potato Salad recipe is made with golden potatoes, a creamy sauce that’s a bit spicy and then loaded with extras. You’ll got a little crunch, a little spice and a whole bunch of flavor. It’s like a salad version of a Jalapeño Popper!

Potato Salad Recipe with a bit of a kick! Like your favorite jalapeño popper, it's creamy with bacon and golden potatoes. #PotatoSalad #Tailgating #PotatoSaladRecipe #SaladRecipe

Since this is a mayonnaise based salad, you want to be sure it stays refrigerated properly. If you’re bringing it to a summer BBQ or serving at a buffet (where it might be left out for an extended period of time), be sure to serve the bowl over ice. 

If you want to make the Jalapeño Potato Salad recipe, but you’re worried about how spicy it’ll be, you can cut the peppers in half. That’ll give you the same flavor palate without being too spicy.

Serve it as a side dish alongside your favorite grilled meat or burgers. Store the salad in an air-tight container and refrigerate for up to seven days after making it. I promise that everyone will love the recipe and it’ll become a family favorite recipe for every gathering.
