Potato Salad with Blue Cheese Dressing

Potato Salad with Blue Cheese Dressing

I've had a few requests since I started Lisa's Kitchen for nutritional information, recipe suggestions and food tips. I'm honored that folks are seeking my advice, and I'll continue to answer your questions to the best of my abilities. I'm looking forward to the day when this site will become a virtual culinary reference stop.

Recently a friend was wondering if I could recommend any good potato salad recipes. I'm a little late meeting his request, but I couldn't resist trying this potato salad with a creamy blue cheese dressing that has all the goodness of a traditional potato salad but packed with plenty of flavor. Possible variations would include substituting Feta cheese for the the blue cheese.

  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • paprika for garnish

This potato salad looks great! Thanks for the substitution, although I love blue cheese, it is not a great favourite in this house. But I could split the recipe and do half with blue and half with feta!
