“This is not your usual mustard mayo potato salad. These potatoes are slathered in a rich ranch dressing and bacon pieces. My family and friends love this potato salad! It is requested at every cook-out.”

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add whole potatoes, and cook until tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain, run under cold water to cool, and chop into 1 inch cubes. Transfer to a large serving bowl, and refrigerate until completely chilled, about 2 hours.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the ranch dressing mix, mayonnaise and green onion. Cover, and refrigerate for about 2 hours to blend flavors.
  3. Wrap bacon in paper towels and place on a plate. Cook in the microwave until crisp, about 15 minutes depending on the power of your microwave. Cool.
  4. Stir the mayonnaise mixture into the bowl of potatoes. Crumble bacon into the bowl, and stir to distribute. Serve.

Great recipe for a change up on traditional potato salad. Based on other reviewers suggestions, I used 1 cup mayo and 1 cup sour cream. Added 1/2 tsp of chili powder to kick it up a notch. Will definitely be making this again for a change of pace.



This was a wonderful starting point for creating a delicious potato salad. I brought it to my 4th of July picnic today and people's exact words were "oh my god this is so freaking good!" I did tweak the recipe a litle bit after taking users' advice and it turned out wonderfully. I did/added the following with mine-- -I cut the potatoes first and then boiled them for a shorter time (12 min). -I substituted one cup of mayo with 1 cup sour cream. -I tossed it with 4oz of coarsely grated mild cheddar cheese. -I added 4 chopped hard-boiled eggs. I just wanted this salad to be out of this world and it was! My friends loved it!



This went over well at our Dad's Day BBQ. Subbing sour cream for half the mayo added nice flavor. I followed a previous reviewer's recommendation and used less bacon... do NOT do this. The bacon was the best part!! Added more sliced green onions and real bacon bits to the top for presentation.
