Bacon Blue Cheese Potato Salad
I turn 40 this weekend. I know, 40, crazy! As I was making this potato salad, I decided I don’t really love celery and I’m not putting it in this. I’m 40 and I don’t have to eat celery if I don’t want to.
But I like texture in everything I eat and I wanted a crunch. So I added bacon. Crispy, crunchy bacon. It isn’t the healthiest replacement for a veggie, but it does make a tasty potato salad.
After I added the bacon, it seemed lonely, so I added blue cheese because everyone knows they are the best of friends. Then it seemed too wintery, so I added corn. And it was amazing.
I used thin-skinned potatoes, so I didn’t have to peel them. Trader Joe’s has a 3 color medley right now and it makes beautiful potato salad – red skinned, yukon gold and blue potatoes. I tossed them in my instant pot to cook.
Mr. LAM packs his lunch everyday, which is super when you’re starting to blog. Sometimes the poor guy is eating some mess that didn’t work out. Not today. I’m super jealous he got the end of the potato salad.
I may make it again for the weekend.
