Fabulous!! I have made this dish numerous times and it is a big hit with the family. You can use any type of vinegar (red, white wine, baslamic). I cut the oil amount in half and use turkey bacon. Definitely a keeper.

Did not like this receipe at all. Surprising because I do like all the ingredients, but not together.

A friend of mine recently made a blue cheese potato salad that called for sour cream. It was pretty good, but this recipe is so much better. It actually reminds me of my german potato salad with the extra bonus of the cheese. This is great served at room temperature. Thank you!

Easy and good recipe. I added more blue cheese, and added it while potatoes where still warm. This melts the cheese a bit and makes it creamier. Lots of good comments when served at a BBQ recently!

Unique combination of flavors.

Whenever I make this salad, I get lots of "ooh's" and "ahhh's". For those that don't care for blue cheese, you can also substitute crumbled gorgonzola. It's just as rich!

I enjoyed this very much, but I thought it needed salt. I will make it again, but use less oil, more blue cheese, and more salt.

Absolutely delicious! I used 1/2 the oil called for in the recipe. Served it at a barbecue last night, and it got rave reviews. My guests want me to make it again tonight!
