Preparation
  1. Lay bacon over Multipurpose Tray in Multipurpose Steamer. Cover and microwave on high 4–5 min, or until crispy.   
  2. Meanwhile, cube potatoes.    
  3. Remove bacon and Multipurpose Tray from steamer. Using a paper towel, remove most of the bacon grease from the steamer. Add potatoes. Cover and microwave on high until cooked, about 8 min.  
  4. Meanwhile, prepare dressing. In a bowl, whisk together mayo, sour cream, and dressing mix. Add milk; whisk to combine. 
  5. Once potatoes are cooked, uncover and place in refrigerator to cool down for 5 min.   
  6. Meanwhile, chop cooked bacon. Slice green onions.   
  7. Once potatoes have cooled down, add dressing and bacon. Toss gently to coat. Stir in onions and cheese. Serve at room temperature or cover and chill until ready to serve.  Add toppings, if desired. 
Tips

Waxy potatoes are the number one choice for potato salad. Once cooked, they hold their shape, while still being soft & creamy. Besides red skinned potatoes, most of the small varieties such as fingerling, new, or medley baby potatoes are the waxy type you’re looking for.   

Cut down on sodium and fat by swapping bacon with Better Than Bacon Topper—a deliciously smoky and crunchy vegan topping.
