Bacon Ranch Potato Salad

My sister-in-law made this potato salad this past weekend for a belated 4th of July celebration.  It was a nice twist on potato salad which, let’s face it, can be a little boring.

The recipe originally comes from Betty Crocker’s website.

You’ll need:

  • 1 1/2 lb small red potatoes, quartered
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup celery, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chives or green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup bacon, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup ranch dressing
  • salt and pepper, to taste

In a medium sauce pan, place the potatoes and salt.  Add just enough water to cover the potatoes.  Heat the water until it boils.  Reduce the heat and then simmer 10-15 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.  Drain and rinse with cool water.

Put potatoes in a large bowl.  Add the tomatoes, celery, chives/green onions, and bacon.  Stir in the ranch dressing.  Salt and pepper to taste.

This can be served warm or cold.
