Bacon Ranch Potato Salad

In the spring and summer, I love cooking outside. Grilling is one of my favorite things in the world! I always have a hard time finding sides though that I like since I am not a fan of most cold salads. This potato salad is one of my favorites. I make it early in the morning before the heat of the day and chill it so it is ready to make a great side to whatever meat I am grilling.

This recipe is super simple and very frugal!
