Best Salad

August 09, 2015
This is without a doubt the best salad I've ever had or made!  Everyone who tastes it raves about it and wants the recipe.  I use tiny red, white and blue potatoes, more basil and more cheese (crumbled) and only about a handful of arugula.  

Great Side

I used fresh corn, grilled on the grill.  Omitted the arugula and crumbled the goat cheese.  Great side!

Our vegan neighbors LOVE this salad and they are "foodies." I just eliminate the cheese for them and add it for other guests.

I used corn since fresh isn't locally available yet. I left out the cheese altogether so my vegan sister could eat this, and since I was also serving a mixed greens tossed salad didn't add arugula either. Excellent switch from routine potato salad, and beautiful to look at. Went well with steamed lobsters and steaks for the 4th. Everyone liked it. Will definitely make again.

Fabulous salad! I substituted Spring Mix for the Arugula and Feta for the Goat Cheese. Will definitely make again!

Such a hit at parties!! Lots of ways to change it up, too - though it is perfect just the way it is.
