I’m a born and bred southern girl, and if its one thing I know, it’s how to make potato salad. Now, this isn’t just any ordinary potato salad — it’s got a kick, and a flavor that leaves everyone wanting more.

I first discovered this recipe in a bbq restaurant and instantly fell in love with it. I made it my lifelong goal to recreate the tasty concoction and am going to share it with all of you! If you like ranch dressing and bacon, then this recipe is right up your alley!
