Bacon Ranch Potato Salad

Hi, I hope your summer is going well.  Ours has been a different one for sure.  Hospitals and doctor's visits seem to take up our time.  My son was recently hospitalized again,...hopefully he is on the mend.  I hope to return to being a more regular blogger soon.  I miss all of you!  Today I bring to you a really fast and delicious potato salad recipe.  It only has four ingredients and it is super yummy.  My daughter Talley made it the first time,, and we have loved it ever since.  I think it is the dry ranch dressing which makes it so tasty, and of course the bacon.  Trust me, you won't be able to keep your hands off this salad. 

I am sure this recipe was not original with me, but I do not have the source.  I always like to credit where I can.
Bacon Ranch Potato Salad
4 pounds red potatoes, peeled, quartered and boiled until firm, but not mushy --  other potatoes will work but, reds are the best with this.
1 package dry Ranch seasoning
1 cup good quality mayonnaise (NOT Miracle Whip)
12 -16 ounces bacon, cooked and then crumbled
Cook potatoes and cool,  then cut potato quarters into smaller pieces.  Place potatoes in a large mixing bowl. Add Ranch seasoning, mayonnaise, and bacon and mix well.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I we do!

Thanks for dropping by the couch!

True story: I make a lousy potato salad. My solution is generally to opt for a pasta one instead and let the good tater salad makers do their thing. I do believe that I might break my own losing streak if I tried this one. How can one with bacon bits not be simply delicous? I am definitely going to try this and soon.

And I'm sorry your son was hospitalized again! This has been a bummer summer for so many folks. I just hope that "easy" days must be around the corner.
