This great little potato salad recipe is yet another way you can make and enjoy potato salad... I love changing up classic recipes.. it keeps them from being boring and hum drum.
You can use any type of potato you prefer using for potato salad... personally.. I like Yukon Gold or red potatoes.
Be sure to cut the potatoes into evenly sized cubes so they cook evenly.
Use any ranch dressing you like... homemade or store bought... but make sure you use one that has a strong flavor otherwise it will get lost in the salad.
I like thick sliced smoked bacon.. I love the smoky flavor... but again.. you can use any type you prefer.
Make the bacon in the oven.. for an easy clean-up... click here for the "How to Make Bacon in the Oven" post.
I don't make really crispy bacon... I don't like the hard pieces in my salad... but make sure it is crisp.. just not like a twig.
Use both the white and green parts of the green onion.
I hope you try this spin on a classic salad ... it's great for a change of pace!
