This bacon ranch sweet potato salad is the perfect summertime side dish! Serve it at picnics, barbecues, or just for a weeknight dinner. It’s paleo, AIP, and Whole30.



For the potato salad

  • 2 large white sweet potatoes, chopped (sub orange sweet potato)
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 3 sprigs green onion, sliced
  • 34 pieces of cooked bacon, chopped
  • 1/2 cup homemade ranch

For the ranch (see notes for storebought)

  • 1/2 cup paleo mayo (sub egg free mayo for AIP)
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley
  • 1 tsp dried dill
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried chives
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper (omit for AIP)


  1. Combine all of the ingredients for the ranch in a large glass jar and blend with an immersion blender until smooth. Set aside in the fridge.
  2. Bring a large pot filled two-thirds of the way with water to a low boil over medium heat on a stove top. Add the white sweet potato and cook for 10-15 minutes or until the sweet potato can be easily pierced with a fork. Carefully strain the excess water with a colander and allow the sweet potato to cool completely. Pat dry if needed, and chill for 20-30 minutes in the fridge.
  3. Using a large bowl, combine the sweet potato, celery, bacon, and green onion and carefully mix with the ranch, adding 1/4 a cup at a time. Serve chilled with extra ranch on the side.
