Blue Cheese and Bacon Potato Salad

Blue Cheese and Bacon Potato Salad

Krissy 0

"This is a scrumptious combination of a favorite Southern restaurant's green bean side dish and potato salad. It's fabulous and your family will thank you. You can serve it right away, but it does well for a few hours in the fridge. Eat cold or at room temperature."

This recipe is fantastic. I doubled it with no problem, the tip about putting the potatoes on a kitchen towel really worked and completely removed the moisture from them. The dressing is easy ...

I thought, "Green beans in potato salad?", but it's really good. I used 3 1/2 oz of smoked blue cheese because that's what I had. I think the smoked cheese amplified the impact of the bacon. ...

I loved it!! Just starting to like blue cheese so a nice change from the normal boring potato salad. my hubbie thought it too tart; shave down the vinegar a bit for his liking

The green beans could have been cooked longer and the sauce was just tangy and vinegar-like.

Made this yesterday for the family and everybody loved it. Didn't have the Blue Cheese so skipped that. Used Turkey Bacon (didn't have regular Bacon). Will make it again with the cheese.
