Blue Ribbon Recipe

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

Note: We 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. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
