Meet Me In the Kitchen For Creamy Ranch Potato Salad (With Video!) + $100 Visa giftcard giveaway!

I feel like I’ve been starting out every recipe lately by talking about the weather.  This winter has been very cold in NYC and we’re all looking forward to the spring.  When it comes summer, I will probably be complaining about how hot it is, but right now I could use some warmth and comfort.

Potato salad is a family staple at so many events, but especially at picnics.  Maybe it’s for a graduation, or a family get together, or a bbq; most likely there is a big bowl of potato salad there.  I love how versatile potato salad can be.  When chilled in the summer, it’s the perfect food to cool off with next to your hot dog.  In the winter time, you can serve it right off the stove to warm you up.

This potato salad is made in 20 minutes and only uses 6 ingredients.  And what a bonus, no peeling potatoes, we’re just washing and cubing these red potatoes up!  With every bite you’re going to get a nice crunch of vegetable with the help of celery and onion.  To make it super creamy we’re going to smother it with Marzetti® Simply Dressed® Ranch Salad Dressing which only has a few simple ingredients, such as extra virgin olive oil, canola oil and sea salt, in it. Check out my how to make this potato salad video here.  Hope you love the potato dance!

Have you seen the Marzetti® Simply Dressed® Salad Dressing bottles in your grocery?  They stand apart with their sleek and modern bottles.  T. Marzetti began as a Columbus, OH family restaurant more than 125 years ago and customers quickly began to take home dressings.  Marzetti caught on to how much their visitors liked their salad dressings so they began selling them in stores during the 1950’s.  Why I love their salad dressings is that they complement salads and meals with no preservatives, high fructose corn syrup or added MSG.  Next time you’re in the grocery store head to the refrigerated section and look for Marzetti® Simply Dressed® and Marzetti® Simply Dressed® & Light dressings.
