  • 3 pounds Red Potatoes
  • ¾ cup Mayo
  • cup Sour Cream
  • 7 strips Bacon (cooked and crumbled)
  • 4 ounces crumbled Blue Cheese
  • 4 stalks Green Onions (chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon Vinegar (plus more for boiling water)
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon Mustard
  • Salt and Pepper


  • Chop the unpeeled red potatoes into 1" cubes, or smaller, and boil in a pot of salted water till tender and easily pierced with a fork. (I recommend adding 1-2 tbsp of vinegar to boiling water to prevent potatoes from overcooking)
  • Remove potatoes from pot once tender and rinse under cold water to cool.
  • Add mayo, sour cream, Dijon, and vinegar to a large bowl and mix to combine.
  • Add crumbled bacon, blue cheese, and green onions and combine further.
  • Add potatoes and toss to coat evenly. Add pepper and salt to taste.
  • Can serve immediately, but flavors will meld better if left in the fridge overnight.
