Bacon Blue Cheese Potato Salad has become one of our favorite potato salad recipes because with the addition of two such strong flavors you don’t feel like you’re eating pure carbs for the sake of it. We like to make different flavored sides and salads because when people come over they always expect something different from the normal backyard party.

This Bacon Blue Cheese Potato Salad came about because we were making bacon and blue Cheese burger covered in Jack Daniel’s sauce (this is so good!). With some extra bacon and blue cheese left over we mixed it into the salad. Okay if I am telling the truth I also added crispy thin onion rings. That may just be gilding the lily though for this recipe.

Tools Used in the making of this Bacon Blue Cheese Potato Salad:
Large Pot with Steamer Insert: Makes life so much easier to lift the potatoes out at once and let them cool without risking a burn trying to strain them into a colander.
Kosher Salt: In 99% of the recipes on this site, you’ll find Kosher salt used. It’s super inexpensive but the flavor is miles better than table salt and less overwhelmingly salty.
Duke’s Mayo: Best mayonnaise ever, and really does add so much to the potato salad. It is more readily available in the middle and east coast of the country, but hey Amazon Prime folks!
