Very good! I did use a bit more mayo and cheese and regular ranch dressing instead of FF. Also I had no fresh parsley so I used some dried. We LOVE trying new potato salads and this one was a nice surprise...A definite keeper YUM! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

This was easy to make and super delicious!! I only had 2 pieces of bacon so I used that and some ham that I had on hand. I used 8 smaller russet potatoes and 5 eggs. I doubled the sauce mixture because we are having this for dinner tomorrow. I loved loved the fresh parsley it was a nice addition. I WILL make this again and again! So good thank you for posting!!

I've made this potato salad twice now. It was requested a second time because they liked it so much when I made it at a prior engagement. I did change it up a bit. I used 1-2 cups of homemade ranch dressing (I like my potato salad creamy and they tend to dry out). It's not fat free by any means but really does make the yummy flavor. Also, instead of mayo, I used miracle whip. I feel like it gives it more flavor than mayo. Also, added a little horseradish and didn't have parsley the 2nd go around so used dried. It tasted just as good as the first batch that had the fresh parsley. Everything else I left as is. This is a keeper recipe! Thank you. Read More

Superb! I love my potato salad n i love this even more with ranch dressing! I made the dressing using the dry hidden valley ranch not ff bottled. I also used more dressing since i love my ps creamy. I omitted the pickles n eggs, since im not fond of either in ps. Def a keeper! Tnx! Read More

It was extremely dry. Added more ranch mayo (used sweet relish instead) and seasoned to taste then it was amazing. Great base recipe to add your own twist for sure! Read More
