Saturday, July 14, 2007 Bleu Cheese Potato Salad Recipe - a Gourmet Potato Salad

Bleu Cheese Potato Salad
Serves 4
Thanks to Dorina for this updated version of everyone's favorite summertime salad - potato salad. This version is also very low in fat compared to the traditional number, and with strongly flavored blue cheese crumbled in, it'll certainly not lack in flavor...

1 ½ pounds round red potatoes—peeled, and cubed (8 cups)
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
¼ cup diced red onion
¼ cup diced celery
2 small green onions, chopped fine
¼ cup low-fat sour cream
2 tablespoons buttermilk
salt and pepper—to taste
1 ounce crumbled blue cheese (1/2 cup)

Place potato in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook potatoes until tender. Drain and place in a large bowl; toss with a little cider vinegar (about a teaspoon) while warm. Add onion, celery, and green onions; toss gently. (The vinegar is an important step: it will help the flavors permeate the potatoes.)

Combine sour cream and next 4 ingredients; stir well. Stir in cheese. Pour over potato mixture; toss gently to coat. Cover and chill overnight.
