    This is a great salad, the ranch and sour cream such a good combination, I made it on Sunday and I think I'll be the resident potato salad maker in the house now👌

    Yummy recipe. Made it for my fire station and they loved it. Added relish, chopped pickles, real mayo, miracle whip, mustard, chopped up hard boiled eggs, and salt and pepper seasoning

    Turned out perfect! I slightly modified the recipe! I added chopped fresh dill, extra bacon & went light on the sauce!

    Made this last night with a few changes. I didn't have a packet of dry ranch dressing so I used bottled ranch dressing in place of some of the sour cream. Also cut back on the amount so it wasn't swimming in sour cream. Still seemed a bit bland so I added chopped fresh dill, finely diced fresh Serrano pepper, shallot, and a ton of black pepper. It was a hit! I'll make it again. Have fun with it, change it up.

    As a base, it’s pretty good, but the contrast in flavor was missing. I brought it to a family picnic and brought home leftovers, so I added pickles and vinegar. That improved the flavor! As a base, with bacon and ranch dressing, it’s pretty good. Just don’t stop there with the flavors.

    it turned out well. I added dill pickles but I think it would have been great without it.

    Delicious! Not a big fan of sour cream but with the ranch mixed in it tones it down. Taking it to a BBQ this afternoon so we will see the feedback from others

    It was pretty good.. I used a ranch dip packet instead of ranch dressing to me it has more flavor, also added celery. Will add boiled egg next time I think tho and only put green onions on top as this time they were added throughout.

    This turned out SO good. My husband doesn’t normally like potato salad, but I finally found one he will eat! I omitted the green onions and added some dill weed and pepper.
