Nicole Solomon


6 red or russet potatoes, cut into bite-sized pieces
5 strips thick cut bacon, diced
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 tablespoon yellow mustard
1 ounce packet ranch dressing mix
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
3 tablespoons green onion, thinly sliced

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the potatoes and cook until fork tender, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.
While the potatoes are cooked, cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until crispy, about 8 minutes. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl whisk together the mayo, sour cream and mustard until combined and smooth. Add the ranch dressing mix, salt, pepper, onion powder, and paprika. Whisk to combine.
Add the potatoes to the dressing and stir with a wooden spoon until the potatoes are evenly coated in the dressing.
Add almost all of the cheese, bacon, and green onion to the potatoes. (Reserve a little of each to garnish the top of the salad.) Gently mix everything together.

Transfer the potato salad to a serving bowl, and garnish with the reserved cheese, bacon, and green onion.
Serve immediately (if you don't mind a warm potato salad) or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.
