My New Litehouse Potato Salad Recipe #SeeTheLite FLASH Giveaway!

This review and giveaway was made possible by iConnect Influencer Management and Litehouse Foods. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% genuine and my own.



My family is full of potato salad-loving people. It doesn't matter if it's mayo or mustard-based, if it's on the table, and all the kids are here (some of them are grown now), it won't last very long. So when I received the request to create a Litehouse recipe with their refrigerated dressings, I was all-in and knew exactly what it was I wanted to do.


I took my youngest son and we headed out to the grocery store to pick up the necessary ingredients. The first thing on our list, the 'star' of the recipe if you will, was the Litehouse Homestyle Ranch dressing.

If your veggies could talk, they would say no to room temperature dressings. Fresh foods deserve fresh tasting dressings that are packed with ingredients like buttermilk and real blue cheese.


This is not your standard Ranch. It is far creamier and has just a tad less tang than what I'm used to in a dressing. It's also easily the most delicious ranch dressing I've ever tasted. I'm thinking that's probably true because it's not hopped up with preservatives (hence the reason it is in the refrigerated section of your grocery, and not on a shelf). It's real. It's delicious. And it was the perfect item to add to a potato salad to turn it into something new and special. Making this light, and very delicious potato salad is really easy. I'll share the directions below.

Ingredients

  • 5 Russet Potatoes
  • 1/4 cup LiteHouse Homestyle Ranch Dressing
  • 1/2 c Chopped Onions
  • 1/4 c. Juienne Carrots
  • 1/4 c. Peas (most people use frozen for their salads, I like the softer version)
  • 1/4 c. Fresh Paremsan Cheese (shredded)
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • Bacon
  • Black Pepper
Boil a large pot of of water. Clean and peel (or not) your potatoes. Cut them into the size you like for potato salad and add them to the pot. Boil until they are tender but not mushy. I did mine 15 minutes. Drain and let cool.


Once your potatoes are cool, add everything but your dressing and  black pepper. Mix well. 


The final step is to add your dressing, make sure it's evenly distributed, coating your mixture thoroughly. Then you want to sprinkle with black pepper.

I'm telling you, it's the Litehouse Homestyle Ranch that makes all the difference with this one. The flavor it lends to the potato salad is absolutely perfect! Just right for summer entertaining too! 

You chop, you dice, you carefully peel. And to top off your vegetables or dress your salad, reach for a cold, fresh tasting refrigerated dressing from Litehouse, because real vegetables deserve real dressing.
