    Okay Nikki, this does look good. When are you gonna make it for us? I would never have thought of potato salad with ranch dressing, bacon and cheese. This is a great idea and this sounds really good to me and really different.

    I’ll make it for our next get together! I normally don’t even go by a recipe and you can even use Spicy Ranch or Bacon Ranch too! We are ranch lovers in this house! It’s a great alternative to regular potato salad. Looks good huh???
