Outdoor dining season is here! In this potato salad recipe, you’ll find tons of crispy bacon crumbles, funky blue cheese, scallions, chives, and a dressing made out of sour cream, mayo, apple cider vinegar, and whole grain mustard. And maybe a just little bit of bacon grease. This isn’t your bland, easily-forgettable side dish. My gal here is flavor-forward, loud and proud.
Loaded bacon and blue cheese potato salad is one of the best sides for summer grilling, barbecues, and picnics. Because it’s as delicious warm as it is chilled, you can serve it right away or serve cold from the fridge. The punchy flavors are great paired with a classic burger or a spicy chicken.
Let’s talk about cheese for a hot second. I’m a blue cheese lover through and through. I use one of my all time favorite cheeses for this dish: the award-winning Point Reyes Original Blue. This blue is super creamy and has the most incredible flavor. If you aren’t a fan of blue cheese (I guess I understand it’s not everyone’s cup of tea), substitute with shredded sharp cheddar.Print
