Red Skinned Potato Salad

Potato Salad is one of those dishes that you can make all your own. You can add all sorts of fresh herbs to this: parsley, dill, etc, whatever flavors you like. You can also substitute Greek yogurt for the mayonnaise...it will make the potato salad slightly tangier. Hormel makes really good "Real" bacon bits that you could use in lieu of the bacon to save a step as well. Perfect side for a cookout, or just a week night meal.

Red Skinned Potato Salad:
2 lbs red skinned potatoes (skin on)
pinch salt
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/2 package prepared Ranch dressing mix
juice of 1 small lemon
2-3 slices of bacon, cooked according to package directions until crispy.

Fill a large pot with water, and add a pinch of salt. Bring water to a boil. Add potatoes, and boil for 15-20 minutes until fork tender. Drain and cut potatoes into 1 inch pieces. Meanwhile, in a small box, mix together the mayonnaise, green onions, Ranch dressing mix, and lemon juice. Place potatoes and Ranch dressing mixture in separate bowls in the refrigerator and chill for about 2 hours. Once chilled, combine the potatoes and Ranch mixture in a medium bowl and then top with crumbled bacon and stir right before serving.

Happy Cooking!
