Directions

  1. Place the potatoes in a saucepan of lightly salted water, bring to a boil, and cook until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain the potatoes in a colander, and let cool.
  2. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned and crisp, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Snip the cooked bacon into pieces with a scissors, or chop.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the mini potatoes, chopped bacon, hard-boiled eggs, broccoli, Cheddar cheese, ranch salad dressing, dill weed, salt, and pepper until thoroughly combined, and serve.

Very close to how I make mine, only I use my Zesty Ranch Dip, thinned down with a little lowfat buttermilk. With the salt in the dip and the cheese, I don't add extra. This potato salad ALWAYS disappears. Make sure to bring copies of the recipe if you make it for a potluck.

My family really didn't like this potato salad. My boys ate it, but they dumped barbecue sauce on it to "kill" the taste. I was surprised, because I was hoping they'd like the ranch dressing base. They love ranch dressing on salads, but it didn't work for them with the other ingredients. Sorry.

This was a great new take on potato salad! There's so many different flavors going on throughout it. I followed the recipe exactly, except for the dill. I find it very overwhelming and was worried it would be too much, so I only used half the amount and you could definitely taste it but it wasn't too much. Also I used the bigger yellow potatoes, because they were cheaper, and just quartered them before boiling them.

Loved it!! A great change from the regular potato salad with an explosion of taste and texture. Glad summer is almost here. I will make it often for sure.

Nice potato salad and I liked the ranch rather than mayo. I didn't use broccoli and I was out of bacon, although I'm sure the bacon would have made it even better! I cut the recipe in half and then only used 3/4 tsp of dill and that was plenty. Also didn't use any salt. We liked it a lot.
