This is a yummy twist to potato salad! It is even better the next day; we always make a full pot so there are plenty of leftovers.

Yummmmy! I also like a little more veg in my potato salad - I add diced cucumber & some diced red or green bell pepper for color. And for a little heat try a splash of Tabasco or some red pepper flakes. Make a BIG batch! You'll WANT more the next day... and the day after that... Read More

Not great as written. Needs salt, needs heavier seasoning. Needs bacon and more egg. Sounds weird, but I can even see this with pulled pork mixed in! I would definitely back off the mayo and up the BBQ sauce next time. This has definitely piqued my interest- I'll be trying it again with a major overhaul because I think this one has the potential to be wonderful with big changes. Read More

Different and delicious! I was concerned that the barbeque flavor would be overwhelming but it wasn't. Just the right amount of barbeque flavor! I kept going back for seconds (and thirds)! I omitted the onion (personal preference). You may want to add some celery for crunch but I think it's fine without it. Read More

This is an AWESOME potato salad! I scaled the recipe back used green onion instead of red 'cause that's all I had and just did the mayo and bbq sauce to taste. I LOVED the sweetness that the bbq sauce added...not too much but just enough to make it interesting and delicious. We really could not stop eating this. I think this would be great with some shredded cheddar added but I'll expierement with that next time (not that it needs anything else because it's wonderful as is). I used 'Sweet Baby Ray's Original' bbq sauce. This is a definate keeper and one that I will make often YUM! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

This was a great potato salad. I am always up for making different version of potato salads and thought this with the bbq sauce sounded like a good one. I made half the recipe since this recipe is a big batch. For the paprika I used a little smoked and sweet paprika along with adding in some italian seasonings parsley and chopped celery. It was pretty good but I still think it needs an extra little something to it. I could barely taste the bbq sauce in it. So next time I may add a little more along with some chopped bell pepper. I also think some bacon and maybe some shredded cheddar cheese would be good in it as well. Thanks for the great recipe! I will make again for sure! Read More

I was really surprised at how good this is! I usually prefer potato salad without onions but I tried this both ways and the onions really bring out the flavor. I used a milder sweet onion finely chopped. Thanks for a great recipe. I will be making this again and again! Read More

I took this to a barbeque this weekend and it was a hit with everyone. I must say it was better the next day! I made it exactly as the recipe stated with the exception I added chopped celery and real bacon bits. A keeper..... Read More

I used less potatoes so used about 1/2 of the mayo and bbq sauce (used brown sugar bbq sauce). Next time I might try adding a little celery for crunch and maybe a little dry mustard powder but I really did enjoy this recipe. A nice change! Thanks for sharing! Read More

hands down the best potato salad ever. I hate potato salad but I love this one. I had to use a brown onion cause it's all I had but it came out just fine. Brown onion a little more spicy then red so I just cut down on pepper. My family loves this and Im hoping it will go over well at the pot lck tomorrow:0) Read More
