Ranch Potato Salad


My parents bought a large amount of baby red potatoes and gave us a box of them. It just so happened that I was looking through some old recipes of mine in one of my very first recipe 'boxes' and found one I had cut from a product label or magazine. It was simple enough and used foods we loved so I decided to try it; Ranch Potato Salad.

In the end it was good.... but missing something. I'm not sure what that 'something' is so I added a little more bacon and some black pepper, which helped; but last night before bed I snitched one more bite of it from the refrigerator I decided that I think this could (would?) be better hot. For the cold salad I think it needs some texture and about 1/4 c fine diced celery would help. I personally think as a hot side dish to a meal it would be tasty. So - hot or cold - you decide.
