Bacon Ranch Potato Salad Recipe ~ Creamy, Delicious and Easy Potato Salad Loaded with Ranch Flavoring and Bacon! Perfect Side Dish to Your Summer Parties!

I have a confession to make. I’ve never made Potato Salad before. I’m going to go ahead and blame this on my mom again just like my baking with yeast fear. She always made it sound so hard.

Well I’ve got news for you! This is a super simple Potato Salad recipe that comes together in no time flat. Now, maybe, just maybe, other potato salads are a little more time consuming I’ll give my Mom that, but hey if it can be made simple I’m all for it.

This salad is stocked full of a creamy dressing made with Hidden Valley dressing mix, tons of bacon bits and of course potatoes! If you are looking for a yummy twist on your Potato Salad at your next grill out this would be perfect!

That is if spring or summer ever decides to arrive up north…..


  • 5 lbs potatoes
  • 1 1/4 c. mayo
  • 1 1/4 c. sour cream
  • 4 Tbsp Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Seasoning Mix
  • 3 oz Real Bacon Bits


1. Clean and cut potatoes into chunks. Place in a large pot of water and boil for 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender.
2. Rinse potatoes in cold water. Place potatoes in fridge until completely cooled.
3. Mix mayo, sour cream Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Seasoning Mix, and bacon bits together in a small bowl.
