2.  Let cool slightly then cut into cubes
3.  Mix in spices one at at time
4.  Add bacon, onion and chives, mix again
5.  Add in sour cream and mayo and mix again
6.  Cover and refrigerate ~ THE LONGER THE BETTER!


  1. Edye Crouse gave me this recipe for Jared and Shannon's rehearsal dinner....Awesome potato salad!

  2. how bout the cole slaw...does anyone have that recipe??

  3. Just made this recipe and although its not sat for very long I tried and its wonderful! I makes plenty of dressing so I doubled the potatoes. Its sitting in the fridge and I can't wait to eat it tonight. Thank you for sharing!

  4. This is really good. I did not need this much so I had to improvise. Also find mixing the sour cream, mayo w/ the salt, pepper, parsly garlic powder and ranch mix works best.

  5. This recipe is RIGHT ON! To get it perfectly matched to Whole Hog I use only 1/4 cup of green onions and only 1 1/2 cups of mayo.

  6. Turned out great! I also mixed all the spices together first. & used only 1 1/2 cups of mayo! I used to work at the whole hog cafe and eat this potato salad everyday!!! It is definitly VERY close to the original.
