  • 3 pounds baby red potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 cup green onions diced
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 cup cooked bacon crumbled
  • 1 bottle Ranch salad dressing 473 milliliters
  • 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon paprika


  • Cut baby potatoes into bite-sized pieces. If the potatoes are larger baby potatoes, cut them in quarters, otherwise half will be enough.
  • Place the potatoes in a 2-quart pot and cover potatoes with water. Boil for 5 to 7 minutes until tender, not too long or they will get mushy. Drain the water and place potatoes in a large bowl.
  • Pour vinegar over the warm potatoes, stir well to mix, then let potatoes cool completely at room temperature.
  • Once potatoes have cooled, add in the rest of the ingredients: green onions, cheese, bacon, Ranch dressing, pepper, and paprika. Stir well to mix.
  • Cover bowl with plastic food wrap and let sit in the fridge for at least 4 hours before serving.
