I pretty much make all of my own salads instead of visiting the deli. A few weeks ago I stopped off to see what items they had prepared because I was looking for something different to try. They had a blue cheese potato salad that looked scrumptious but I couldn’t bring myself to purchase it at $6.95 a pound.
Instead, I chose to take a guess at what ingredients were in the salad and make it for our backyard barbecue on the weekend.
There were two guests that didn’t care for blue cheese. I told them, they had to follow the same rules as the children. They had to try it, if they didn’t like it, then they didn’t have to eat it. One bite and they were believers. They went back for seconds too.
I enjoyed the salad too. Next time I am going to add in a little fried bacon. Yum!
At least 5 medium boiled and chopped potatoes
3/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
1 cup celery (chopped)
2 tablespoons chives (chopped)
3/4 cup sour cream
3/4 cup mayonnaise
3 tablespoons vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
Celery salt to taste
Pepper to taste
Combine the chopped potatoes, crumbled blue cheese, chopped celery and chives into a large bowl. Prepare dressing and pour over salad and mix together. Enjoy!
