We are not big mayo eaters in our house, but this is one of our favorite potato salads, because it tastes more like a baked potato than potato salad.

Texas Ranch Potato Salad

1 (1oz) pkg Ranch dressing mix
2 cups mayo
3/4 cup chopped green onion
1 lb bacon slices, cooked to a crisp and crumbled
5 lbs unpeeled red potatoes

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add whole potatoes and cook until tender, 15-20 minutes. Drain, run under cold water to cool, and chop into 1 inch cubes. Transfer to a large serving bowl and refrigerate until completely chilled, about 2 hours.

In a small bowl, stir together the ranch dressing mix, mayo and green onion. Cover and refrigerate for about 2 hours to blend flavors.

Stir mayo mixture into the bowl of potatoes. Crumble bacon into the bowl and stir to distribute. (Optional – you can also add shredded cheese – it’s tasty!) Enjoy!
