Bacon Ranch Potato Salad
Hidden Valley® Original Ranch has been a staple in my kitchen for as on long as I can remember. It’s our favorite for everything from potato salad and pasta salad to dipping fries, pizza or chicken strips.
Right now you can buy Hidden Valley at Walmart and support Feeding America®. Every $1 helps provide at least 10 meals through Feeding America on behalf of local food banks. Every item you purchase provides 1 meal.
I am very aware of the good that local food banks provide to local families. Here in Oklahoma, we live in the poorest county in the state. Hunger is a real issue. There are several small food banks in our county that are supported by the larger cities food banks.
Food Banks are vital to our county and I am always eager to support them through food drives and making purchases at Walmart that support Fight Hunger: Feeding America.

Do you leave the skins on for potato salad?
I like to boil the potatoes whole and cut them after they are cooked. You can easily remove the skins after cooking if you would like. The skin is usually tender and adds a nice color and texture to the potato salad. Peeling the potatoes is optional.
How long does potato salad last?
When refrigerated properly, potato salad should last 3- 4 days but best in the first 2 days.
