    This was wonderful. Creamy and rich with some crunch and a little bite from the blue cheese. It was a huge hit, will definitely make again!

    I used fat-free mayo and soy bacon to lighten the recipe. Great grilled side dish!

    Delicious! This potato salad is so rich and creamy. I'm going to make it over and over. It's great with steak or hot dogs.

    Delicious! You MUST love blue cheese to like it, but since I do it was a big hit. I've also roasted the potatoes to make it a little easier, and it was just the same. YUM

    Fantastic salad, but potatoes are even better roasted in the oven in olive oil. They are crisper, and easier!

    Have come to "taste" rescipes I see! I'll grill my potatoes on the George Foreman Grill. . .apartment dweller! Not sure about the mustard. It may take away from the blue cheese?

    I hate to disagree with the others, but this was a no for me. The potatoes themselves looked wonderful when they came off the grill, but the dressing ruined them. The vinaigrette was overpowering! And I mean overpowering - the potatoes could have used a fraction of what the recipe made. And don't use the regular brown vinaigrette - it turns the dressing a most unappealing mud color.

    I made this for a block party and the men went crazy over it, not so much the women. The potatoes took double the time to roast in the oven even though I cut them into small pieces and took the foil off the top after 30 minutes. Will definitely make again and I think adding hard-boiled eggs would make it even better. There was too much dressing for the amount of potatoes so I would not add it all at once next time. And, my husband, who never compliments my cooking, said this was the best he has ever tasted! Guess it is a keeper!

    This was wonderful. My suggestion for anyone making the salad for the first time would be to cut back on the blue cheese and then check for taste. More cheese can always be added later, but for many folks too much might be overwhelming. I followed the grilling steps for the potatoes, but divided them into smaller foil packets and baked them in a 400 degree oven. I then turned off the oven, opened the packets, and left them there while finishing dinner. Served the salad warm with grilled polish sausage.

    OMG! Fabulous, hearty recipe! Loved the blue cheese twist in the salad. My favorite potato salad, and it has bacon!

    I made half this recipe - really good! I used fingerling potatoes; didn't use all the dressing and added half the blue cheese called for. It could have used a little more cheese but I liked it as is.
