Ranch House Potato Salad

Ranch House Potato Salad Debbie Moose – Buttermilk

Use homemade or store-bought dressing, I prefer homemade

This easy side dish uses ranch dressing and simple additions to create a potato salad that tastes like you worked all day on it. The dressing contains salt, so you may not need more; taste and see.

2 pounds white potatoes or baby Dutch yellow potatoes
1 cup ranch dressing
3⁄4 cup chopped red onion
3⁄4 cup chopped celery
1⁄4 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley
1⁄4 cup crumbled cooked bacon
1⁄2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper and salt to taste

Place the potatoes in a large pot, add enough water to cover them, cover the pot with a lid, and bring to a boil. Cook until the potatoes are pierced easily with the tip of a sharp knife, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and let cool until you can handle them but they are still warm. Peel and cut into approximately 1-inch pieces. In a large bowl, combine the ranch dressing, red onion, celery, parsley, bacon, and black pepper. Taste, then add salt, if needed. Stir in the potatoes. Cover and refrigerate for several hours to overnight.
