Skinny Bacon, Cheddar, Ranch Potato Salad

Another one of our summertime favorites is potato salad. This potato salad is packed with flavor and low in fat and calories. It makes the perfect side for a summer picnic or BBQ!

Skinny Bacon, Cheddar, Ranch Potato Salad
Makes 10 1/2 cup Servings
Cal 98, Carbs 11.9g, Fat 3.9g, Fiber 2g, Protein 3.8 g

5 medium russet potatoes
2 tsp dry ranch seasoning mix
1/4 cup light mayonnaise
1/2 cup reduced fat sour cream
1/3 cup crumbled bacon bits
1/2 cup reduced fat cheddar cheese
one bunch of chives, chopped
1 tsp kosher salt

In a large pot, bring potatoes and cold water to a boil. Once boiling reduced heat to low, cover, and cook for 7-9 minutes or until fork tender.
Drain potatoes, and return to warm pot. Season with salt. Let potatoes cool to room temperature in pot.
While the potatoes are cooling, in a large bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, and ranch seasoning mix.
Chop cooled potatoes into chunks and add to bowl. Stir well to coat and sprinkle with bacon and cheese.
Top with chives.
Serve immediately, or refrigerate until ready to serve. Enjoy!
