Rated 4 out of 5 by from Twisted Potato Salad I liked this recipe even though I really don't like potato salad, but I did make some changes the 2nd time I made it. I used sort cream & ranch dip mix instead of the ranch dressing & I added sauteed onions & bacon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from had to add to it. Made this as directed and it was insipid "to me" so I had to adjust some stuff and add to it. first off I was working out of a 5 lb bag of potatoes that was already open didn't have a scale so I guesstimated on how much 3 lbs was "may have been more than", I ended up adding a cup of mayo and a 1/2 cup more ranch, more mustard, shredded cheese, bac'n bits, and 4 more eggs. WOW! this stuff is awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ever This potato salad is definitely a keeper. I never thought I would use anything but straight mayo for the dressing but now I use Hidden Valley and probably won't go back to my old recipe. It is just so good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hearty Potato Salad This salad is absolutely delicious. It's very filling but light at the same time. I like mixing the Ranch dressing with mustard and a touch of turmeric for extra flavor. Score!
