  • Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned and crisp, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Snip the cooked bacon into pieces with a scissors, or chop.

This was a great new take on potato salad! There's so many different flavors going on throughout it. I followed the recipe exactly except for the dill. I find it very overwhelming and was worried it would be too much so I only used half the amount and you could definitely taste it but it wasn't too much. Also I used the bigger yellow potatoes because they were cheaper and just quartered them before boiling them. Read More

Very close to how I make mine only I use my Zesty Ranch Dip thinned down with a little lowfat buttermilk. With the salt in the dip and the cheese I don't add extra. This potato salad ALWAYS disappears. Make sure to bring copies of the recipe if you make it for a potluck. Read More

Nice potato salad and I liked the ranch rather than mayo. I didn't use broccoli and I was out of bacon although I'm sure the bacon would have made it even better! I cut the recipe in half and then only used 3/4 tsp of dill and that was plenty. Also didn't use any salt. We liked it a lot. Read More

My family really didn't like this potato salad. My boys ate it but they dumped barbecue sauce on it to "kill" the taste. I was surprised because I was hoping they'd like the ranch dressing base. They love ranch dressing on salads but it didn't work for them with the other ingredients. Sorry. Read More
