    .....with this one, they always request it at get-togethers. Though how anyone could not love blue cheese is beyond me :) Yummm!

    Oh so good! This is my go-to potato salad ever since the first time I made it last summer. Wonderful, easy and delicious. Frankly, I find American potato salad with all it's boiling, cooling and chopping potatoes and eggs tedious; this version is less involved. And I think the flavors are so much better... bacon and blue cheese, how can you go wrong? I use several green onions instead of chives for a little more punch. I've converted several "I dont like blue cheese" friends to the dark side wit

    This was fantastic for the blue cheese lover! It was great paired with BBQ pork ribs for a nice picnic.

    I found this salad quite disappointing. Overall I would say it came out quite overpowering in the bluecheese dept with little other flavor to balance with it. I tried adding some sour cream, which helped mellow the blue cheese and brought up the additional flavorings as well... but it really couldn't be helped and remained slightly bland and odd tasting.

    DELICIOUS! I made this as soon as I saw it in Martha Stewart Living. It is very rich, but amazing. I think I may use scallions next time instead of chives for a bolder onion flavor.
