I LOVE Potato Salad! I will try this one for sure! Only 5 Tablespoons of mayo and Ranch Dressing? Doesn’t seem like much dressing for 5 lbs of potatoes plus other ingredients…..
Hi Marilyn, Glad you like the recipe. You can of course add extra mayo to suit, as I know some people have and others haven’t, depending on their taste. I guess once you have added everything and also they eggs, it can go a little ‘wetter’ so I would use your own judgement at the end when everything is mixed together to see if you need to add more mayo. It’s certainly delicious! Please enjoy.
===just made this. I added extra Hellman’s Mayo, some green relish, some onion powder to taste. had a sample….delish….
