Ranch Potato Salad with Homemade Dressing

Homemade ranch dressing pushes this potato salad over the top. I really like this one for a change from regular potato salad. Top it with bacon and it is amazing!

If you have never made ranch dressing before you might never buy bottled again once you try this recipe for the dressing. You can change up the spices, I really like fresh dill in this salad or oregano. I also use a couple dashes of Tabasco in my dressing. It changes it up just a touch but no one will ever guess what the mystery ingredient is if you just use a tiny bit.
