Bacon-Ranch Potato Salad

Potato salad never goes out of style when it comes to southern-style entertaining. Bacon-Ranch Potato Salad is a wonderful addition to grilled steaks, chicken kabobs & tempting barbecue. Potatoes from a 5-pound bag provide a good size when boiling them whole. Expect to use about 4 to 5 when preparing the recipe & chill the salad before serving so the dressing flavor fully develops. When dessert is in order, you simply cannot go wrong with summer favorites such as peach pie, blackberry cobbler & blueberry crisp. Learn how to make Bacon-Ranch Potato Salad in your very own kitchen.

How To Make Bacon-Ranch Potato Salad

Potato salad is one of the easiest side dishes to prepare requiring a simple dressing that is folded together with the cooked & peeled potatoes. For exceptional texture, the russets are boiled whole in their jackets, then peeled after cooking. Fresh herbs deliver a new spin whilst smoky bacon offers depth to this irresistible variation of a beloved classic.
