  1. I’ve been making a similar version for years, but just never measured out anything. It’s great for potlucks and picnics and there’s never a bit left in the bowl!

  2. Soo good! Made it with traditional rotisserie chicken and it was really good. I didn’t have bottled Ranch, so I used 2 Tbls dry Ranch Dressing mix mixed with a cup of milk which worked out well. The leftovers were even better!

  3. Sounds better than the one I made for the 4th — Ranch BLT Macaroni Salad.

    Just a bit on blah side — even added more Hidden Valley Ranch dressing.

    Thx — will def try this and ditch the other one for good.

  4. Also pinned a recipe on my food board

  5. can this be made with the greek yogurt?

  6. who doesn’t luv bacon? I thin I’ll have to try this one this weekend
