Bacon Ranch Potato Salad

I have already made this recipe for bacon ranch potato salad from Plain Chicken several times since Steph posted it. I make it a little different than she does in that I serve it cold and I don’t mix the dressing in with the potatoes. Instead, I serve the dressing on top. So it’s bordering on being a baked potato. In fact, the ‘dressing’ would be fantastic on top of a baked potato!
