I am so excited to be the first person to review this recipe! This potato salad is not a 'traditional' recipe, but I think that works in its favor. I loved the tangy flavor of the vinegar, and the little bit of spice the mustard gave the salad. And the blue cheese just put this over the top. I will definitely be making this again because it was so easy to make and tasted wonderful. Thanks for sharing the recipe, Maridele!

I chose this specifically for a company picnic my husband was attending. I guess a couple of years ago the entire office ate something bad and all came down with food poisoning, so I was hoping to avoid a similar catastrophe - ha! Anyway, this was super easy and extremely tasty. I used blue cheese this time but I think feta would work, too. I made it the night before and let it sit so by the next day, it was totally ready to go! The basil added a fresh touch that I really liked, also. Everyone loved it, and as of today, no one's called out sick :) Calling it a keeper.


AMAZING! I added candied walnuts and the flavors combined are out of this world!
