Ranch Potato Salad

This potato salad recipe couldn’t be easier. The hardest part is boiling the potatoes! You don’t even have to peel them. I love the flavour of ranch dressing and it pairs perfectly with the potatoes and crisp veggies. Use your favourite type of ranch dressing. If you use peppercorn ranch, I’d leave out the extra pepper so you don’t overwhelm your tastebuds!

I typically serve potato salad at barbecues or potluck meals, but lately I’ve been making it as a side for our suppers. It goes nicely with steak or chicken. It tastes delicious served warm or chilled.

The last time I made it I put it in the fridge to chill till supper time. I didn’t realize that one of the kids adjusted the temperature of the fridge to 0 degrees C. When I went to eat the salad with supper, the potatoes were like little ice cubes! Then I discovered why when I saw the temperature of the fridge. FYI it doesn’t taste good frozen!
