1 Pkt Ranch Dressing Mix
C Mayonnaise
C Sour Cream
1 tsp Celery Seed
1 tsp Salt

1 Tb Apple Cider Vinegar

Andy, I'm afraid I gained a couple of pounds just reading that recipe. It sounds absolutely delicious! BTW, about how many average eaters does this recipe serve? "Average" being the operative word.

I don't know. A lot. If you're serving this, along with a bunch of other foods at a cookout, lots of servings. If you're using it as a side for you and your DH, not as many because it takes a more prominent role.

Andy, the addition of cucumber in a potato salad sounds both surprising and refreshing, and everyone knows life is better with bacon! I can't wait to give this a try.

I use cuke because I don't like celery, which is more common. Feel free to sub celery if you like.
