Picnics, game day, and potlucks are all prime times for potato salads. There are as many potato salad recipes as there are sporting events in which to enjoy them. I’m not a ‘traditional’ potato salad lover, but I do enjoy a good German potato salad and this recipe.

Potato salad is a Southern staple much like pimento cheese and fried chicken is. This recipe is a new take on potato salad. It’s a cross between Twice Baked Potatoes and potato salad. Loaded with ranch seasoning, cheese, and bacon this is always a crowd-pleaser!

The creamy component of this salad is a combination of Greek yogurt and mayonnaise with ranch dressing seasoning mixed in for flavor. I pretty much love ranch dressing in any food. As well, this potato salad is loaded with cheddar cheese and bacon. After all, everyone loves cheese and bacon, right?

I piled the ‘good stuff’ on top for these photos. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be able to tell what’s in the salad. It makes a great presentation to do this when serving. However, there is one caveat, you may have someone like my husband who gets a lot of toppings and a small amount of the potatoes. Not good. I recommend giving it a good stir before serving!

    Yummy! Only thing I did differently was add some hard boiled eggs. My family asks for it all the time.
