A hearty potato salad that goes great with BBQ, steak, and cold cut subs or sandwiches.

"Some people like it heavy on the ranch, I prefer a mild ranchyness my self, start at half the package and go from there. Over doing the ranch can make the salad less tasty.



1/2 packet Ranch Dip seasoning
5lbs Bag Large Red Potatoes; Cut into medium sized chunks
1 26 oz tub Sour cream; reduced fat
1 cup Cooked Bacon Bits; More or less depending on taste. Can sub with turkey bacon bits to reduce calories.
Green Onion; Finely Chopped
2 Tablespoon Mayo

Original recipe makes 10 Servings



First, Cut red potatoes into small to medium sized chunks and boil in lightly salted (boiling) water until just fork tender (Its important for the consistency to take them out while they are still firm but fork tender).

Once they have reached desired consistency, strain and set aside to cool (I spread them out on a large cookie sheet to cool).

In Large mixing bowl combine Sour cream, Mayo, Bacon Bits, ranch DIP seasoning (Its best to add half of the ranch dip mix and taste to get the preferred amount of ranch flavor, I usually use a little more than half the package) and salt and pepper to taste.

Once this mix is to taste add Potatoes and ¾ of the green onions and mix until covered. Sprinkle the rest of the green onions on top and some of the paprika for color and refrigerate then enjoy :)


Hope you enjoy

It didn't have enough flavor. I had to add the whole pack of ranch.
