  1. Place the potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and refrigerate until cold, then cut into bite-size pieces.
  2. While the potatoes simmer, cook the bacon. Place the bacon in a large skillet; cook over medium-high heat until brown and crisp, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate; crumble.
  3. Combine the cooked potatoes, crumbled bacon, Cheddar cheese, and green onions in a large bowl. Fold in the ranch dip. Refrigerate overnight.

awesome and simple! Everyone in the house loved it!

I doubled the bacon and the green onions and I used my own ranch dip. I didn't have time to refrigerate it overnight but I did make it early this morning before it got hot and stuck it to set in...

Very good! Easy and I love recipes you can make ahead. It was a big hit at a recent graduation party.

Very easy to make. I halved the recipe and didn't have time to let it sit overnight, and it was still very tasty. I will be making this again!

This was pretty good. May have been better with a better quality ranch dip. Next time I will use Hidden Valley.

At first I was worried but once I tried it after it chilled for awhile....YUMMMMMM!!! I really hope everyone likes it because if they don't I'll eat it all. Very easy and quick to make!

I made this for a BBQ this summer. Everyone loved it and I get requests for it now. Its totally yummy!

awesome recipe and I made it just as it was written. The bad part is now that my friends tried and loved it, they have said at our next party, my job is to bring this great salad!!
