Recipe Inspiration: My inspiration for this dish was my mother and my home. I am an Ohio native who loves salad and visiting farms. I incorporated this into my dish. I included ranch dip, a bit of bacon and potatoes for the "farm" part, and a salad like theme for my love of salad, as well as my Mom's favorite potato topping, a vegetable mix. This recipe is important to me because it is original and reminds me of home. I also can't forget to mention that it is delicious!
