  • 5 lbs red potatoes, (or white) cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, plus 1/2 teaspoon for dressing
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 (5 oz) container blue cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons prepared horseradish


Preheat oven to 450°. Line a large shallow roasting pan with non-stick aluminum foil.


In a large bowl, combine potatoes, olive oil, garlic, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper, tossing gently to coat. Arrange potatoes in a single layer on prepared pan. Bake for 35 minutes, until potatoes are tender and lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Remove from oven and cool.


In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-low heat. Add onions; cover and cook for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Uncover and add vinegar. Stir until vinegar evaporates, about 1 to 2 minutes.


In a large bowl, combine potatoes, onions, and Blue Cheese Dressing. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate. Bring to room temperature before serving.


Blue Cheese Dressing:


In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, blue cheese, sour cream, horseradish and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Cover, and refrigerate.


Yield: about 1 cup

This recipe turned out to be very busy in flavors, not the sort of easy living expected from a potato salad. Roasting potatoes is a neat change from boiling or frying. The Blue Cheese dressing added tang.

OMG Becky; this

OMG Becky; this is so goooooooood…I almost ate half of it before the guests arrived.

I couldn't find Crumbled Blue Cheese in Texas that was less that $4.89 for the 5 oz cup, so I substituted Garganzola and added some dill into the potatoes before I added the onion and Blue Cheese dressing.

This stuff is dangerous; should have a caution flag on the recipe for 'will make you smack yo Mama'……thank you Paula Deen! You Rock Girlfriend.
