Ready for the easiest side dish you will ever make in your life? COOL! This Easy Hash Brown Potato Salad came about one day when I bought everything to make a potato salad recipe… except I forgot the potatoes. So I looked in the freezer, found a bag of frozen hash browns and this wonderful weeknight hack was born. My favorite thing about this recipe is that it is so easy to make different variations of! The only ingredients are hash browns, salad dressing and mayo and you can use any salad dressing you want! I used Primal Kitchen’s Dreamy Italian dressing, but also love their BBQ Ranch, Greek dressing, or basically anything in the fridge.
This is great for a barbecue but it really comes in clutch on a busy weeknight when you have no idea what to make for a side dish. Also helps that Ruthie loves potatoes so she gobbles this stuff up. She is kinda of a food eating machine and I love it so much. If you follow my instagram stories you probably see her eating large handfuls of yummy food on the daily and carbs like this are her #1 bestie.
So grab some salad dressing and go to town!
