Loaded Baked Potato Salad

Remember that Low Country Boil I made for my birthday party I told you guys about on Monday? Well it pretty much got gobbled up and I didn't have too much leftover, but there were a lot of potatoes. Turns out when theres sausage, crab legs and shrimp to eat people kind of skip the potatoes. So I was left with about 3 pounds of leftover cooked potatoes. What to do?

Common sense says potato salad, duh. But I don't really like potato salad. It was suggested that we have steak for dinner and I remember a deli salad I had before that was "loaded baked potato salad." It has all the flavors of a baked potato, but cold and delicious! Perfect for a summer night. We even ate outside on the patio on my new patio furniture. This is one time where I was loving some leftovers!
