How Long Does Baked Potato Salad Last
You can store this loaded baked potato salad recipe in the refrigerator for up to 5 days after you make it. I love to make a big batch and then eat it with lunch the entire week after I make it. Before you eat it, just give it a quick mix because sometimes the toppings will fall to the bottom of the bowl.
If you decide to make this for a party and it’s been sitting outside for more than a couple of hours, I would just throw any leftovers away because the mayo in the potato salad can go bad if it’s been sitting out for a few hours.
