Sobeys: Fully Loaded Potato Salad Recipe #SAVOURTHESUMMER

In the summer months, we spend as many days as we can grilling outside. I love the smell of barbecue and all of the sides that go along with it.

Sobeys wants to help you get your grill on with some fun recipes. I had the chance to cook up a nice dinner for my family and my parents yesterday using Sterling Silver Premium Beef, Compliments and Sensations by Compliments all from Sobey’s. The recipe I chose to make was a new twist on an old barbecue favourite.

Fully Loaded Potato Salad


  • 2 lb (1 kg) Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled, cut into medium chunks
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) Compliments Real Mayonnaise
  • 1 cup (250 mL) low-fat sour cream
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) Sensations by Compliments Original Dijon Prepared Mustard
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) chili powder, plus more for garnish
  • 5 slices Compliments Naturally Smoked Bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • ½ cup (125 mL) finely diced red pepper
  • ½ cup (125 mL) finely chopped green onions, divided
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) + 1 tbsp (15 mL) shredded Compliments Monterey Jack Cheese, divided


  1. Place diced potatoes in a large pot and fill with cold water. Bring water to a boil and cook potatoes until tender when pierced with a fork, 18 to 20 min. Drain and cool.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine mayonnaise, sour cream, mustard and chili powder. Add cooled potatoes and gently toss. Add bacon, red pepper, 1⁄4 cup (60 mL) green onions and 1⁄4 cup (60 mL) cheese and gently toss again. Cover and chill until cold, about 20 min. Garnish with remaining green onions, cheese and a sprinkle of chili powder.

This was an easy recipe to make. The longest part was waiting for the potatoes to cook and after they cooled, it was just a matter of mixing everything together.

Everyone enjoyed the recipe. When I make it again, I am going to add a little more bacon for a stronger flavour, but I really liked it.

The beef we grilled up was a Sterling Silver Premium AAA Ribeye that is available at Sobey’s and it only needed a little bit of salt and pepper before grilling. The flavour was amazing and everyone was happy. Even my picky four year old told me it was ‘yummy’.
