If you are looking for the perfect salad to bring to a picnic this Bacon Ranch Potato Salad is a must try! This Bacon Ranch Potato Salad never has any leftovers when I make it and bring it to a picnic!
We are having a lot of fun this summer, between just hanging out at the house, trips to the movies, summer camp and our family reunion along with some day trips that I am all about cooking easy tasty meals that we all love. Litehouse Salad dressing is sponsoring this post and has helped me make one of our favorite recipes for the summer even better. We all know that on those hot summer nights, a great way to cool down is with a refreshing salad or veggie dish filled with the best seasonal ingredients and Litehouse is helping me do just that after our long busy days.
It is summer time and I am all about anything that I can make ahead of time and have us enjoy all week long along with anything that can be cooked on the grill. We have been doing a lot of steak, burgers, hot dogs and BBQ chicken and with that we need tasty sides. The last few weeks everyone has been asking every time I ask for ideas for me to make this Bacon Ranch Potato Salad. It is amazing and so easy to make too! Plus making a 5 pound batch of potatoes means that we have enough for a few days with me only having to make it once every few days. Plus since I am making our meals with real food, I want real dressing as well, which I have covered with refrigerated Litehouse dressing.
While you are shopping for your ingredients for the Bacon Ranch Potato Salad just look next to your veggies while shopping and you will find the Litehouse Ranch dressing. Litehouse makes delicious refrigerated dressings that can be found in the produce section and are perfect for making this potato salad!
Bacon Ranch Potato Salad
First boil your potatoes in a pot until they are soft enough that you can easily mash them in to bit sized chuncks (mine took about 30 minutes) then drain. Easiest way to check them is to use a knife and poking them while they boil.
After draining put back in to your pot and mash potatoes into pieces with a potato masher and then let potatoes cool for about 30 minutes
While potatoes are cooling cook your bacon until crispy then drain on a paper towel. I cook mine on the stove but you can cook it however you like to best, stove, microwave or oven. Once cooled crumble into pieces.
Dice your large red onion and set aside
Once your bacon is cooled and your potatoes are cooled add the bacon, cheese, LiteHouse Ranch Dressing and onions to the chunked potatoes and stir well. Making sure everything is coated well with the dressing.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
