What's in it


5 lb. small red potatoes
1 (1 oz.) package ranch dressing mix
1 (8 oz .) container sour cream
1 cup mayonnaise
3/4 tsp. seasoning salt ( I use Beau Monde, but you can always season with salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste)
1 bunch scallions
1 (8 oz.) package or two cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 lb. extra thick sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled

How to cook it


  • Set potatoes in a pot with cold water that covers the top by no more than an inch. Salt water with 2 tbsp. salt and boil potatoes until tender. Drain potatoes and let cool until you are able to handle them. Slice potatoes into chunks and place in a large bowl.
  • While potatoes are boiling make dressing in a small bowl- combine ranch packet, sour cream, mayo and seasoning salt.
  • Pour dressing over potatoes and add scallions, cheese, and bacon. Stir to combine salad and season if needed. Place in refrigerator for at least 4 hours.
