Super Easy 5-Ingredient Red Potato Salad

Need a super easy recipe for your next barbeque or potluck? How about this 5-Ingredient Red Potato Salad!

Super Easy Red Potato Salad #recipe that has just 5 ingredients | MoneywiseMoms

With favorite flavors like bacon and ranch, this is the summer version of a loaded baked potato.

It's the perfect side dish for grilled chicken, fish, or even burgers.

I find the potatoes cook faster if I cube them first (large-sized chunks), then boil.

If you're not a fan of bottled ranch dressing, you can make your own with buttermilk and mayonnaise. Try this homemade ranch dressing recipe from Spend with Pennies.

These flavors go so well together. I'd love to know if you give this recipe a try. Just leave a comment below!
