This looks downright weird. It is called 'Cheddar, Bacon, Ranch, Pulls'. I am just waiting for the next big pot luck, or reception in life to have tables themed and stacked with Pinterest inspired "pull foods" (blooming onion pulled appetizer, cheddar/bacon/ranch pulls, pulled chicken crescents, pulled pork in buns and stacked, pull apart carmel rolls and breads for dessert...).
Texas Ranch Potato Salad. Love potato salads, but not the calories :) so, for a skinnier (and healthier) version, I opted-out of cheddar and upgraded the dressing: no sour cream and mayo, just low-fat yougurt with a dollop of mustard + a bit of ground paprika, fresh chopped parsley, smashed garlic and a bit of salt instead of the dry ranch mix. Result - yumm!
