Mer's picnic potato salad
I am proud to say I made up this recipe! So, the picture isn't winning a prize in Gourmet magazine, but potato salad isn't about frills. right?! No garnish or fancy plate necessary, just good ol' picnic food.
10 medium All purpose potatoes- washed,diced and cooked until tender
3/4 cup mayo
1/4 cup ranch dressing (I used light)
2 tbsp. stone ground mustard or a few good squirts of yellow mustard will do ya
1/4 cup sweet relish
1/2 medium red onion diced finely
8 slices cooked crumbled bacon- I used turkey bacon in this pic
4 hard boiled eggs chopped
salt and pepper to taste
I think potatoes keep their shape better if you dice them first then boil them (15 minutes). After the potatoes have cooled, place them in a large bowl. Sprinkle salt and pepper over potatoes, these suckers seem to eat up the salt. Dump all of the remaining ingredients on top of potatoes, only stiring at the end to prevent "mushage".
