Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This potato salad recipe is simple and different. Even people that typically don't care for potato salad will like this, I think. It's super creamy and the ranch flavor is mild. Bacon is a great compliment to the flavor - adds texture and a saltiness. A great addition to your summer BBQ or picnic.

Note: I cubed the potatoes and boiled them for 15 min and they were perfect. When cooking bacon in the microwave, generally you can cook for 1- 1.5 minutes per slice.

Ingredients

1
1 oz pkg dry ranch salad dressing mix
2 c
mayonnaise, light
3/4 c
chopped scallions
1 lb
bacon
5 lb
