With the summer fast approaching, it’s really time to break out the summer recipes.
You do have summer recipes right?
We’re talking about things that are better enjoyed when the weather is warmer.
One of these things is potato salad.
And let us tell you something about potato salad.
It’s made for the summer and it can be prepared a lot of different ways.
Our favorite style of potato salad is southern style.
So let’s learn how to make southern style potato salad.
Ok, to make this recipe you will need the following things:
- 1 pack of ranch dressing mix
- 2 cups of mayo
- 3/4 cup of diced green onion
- 5 lbs of red potatoes (about 13 spuds)
- 1 pound turkey bacon sliced up
This may seem like a lot of stuff especially a lot of bacon but this is REAL southern style cooking.
When you make this potato salad you are going to taste each and every ingredient with every bite and you are going to want more.
So to prepare everything is simple.
Cook the bacon in the microwave (alternatively you can fry them if you want everything crispy but the microwave is easier), then boil your potatoes (after cleaning them) for about 22 mins in salty water.
Once the potatoes are done cool them off and mash them.
Mix your ranch, mayo, and green onions, in a bowl then place the mashed potatoes, the ranch mix, and the bacon in the fridge for about 3 hours to get cold.
Now take it all out, dice up the bacon, combine it with the ranch mix, and then combine everything together.
And there you go.
A real delicious southern potato salad that it best served during the warmer months and outside too.
We love summer-time cooking, because we love being outside.
