Weekend Cooking: Bacon Blue Cheese Potato Salad

 Summer is here, and that means lots of picnics and family gatherings.  So I figured it was time to pull out my secret weapon when I attend such events.  It is super easy to make.

Bacon Blue Cheese Potato Salad.  There is nothing bad going on in that description, no?  Except for a few calories, but you don't get compliments on bringing the healthiest dish to these things, now, do you?

I found this recipe on Food.com and can check it out if you are interested in fat grams and calories and stuff like that.

Ingredients:


2 1/2 lbs red potatoes, cut into eighths
5 slices bacon
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
1 TBL vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
4 green onions, chopped
3 ounces blue cheese, crumbled (about 3/4 cup)

Boil potatoes until tender.  Cook bacon until crisp, then cut into one inch pieces.  In a bowl, combine mayo, sour cream, vinegar, salt and pepper.  Fold in green onions, cheese, potatoes and bacon.  Can be served immediately, or keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

I can just eat blue cheese out of the container. Well, mixed with some walnuts and dried cranberries. It's the best! :--)

Oh man! If I made this recipe I would eat the whole thing myself. I must move on before I gain weight just thinking about it.
