Red, White, & Blue Potato Salad

Lori Heddinger


I just love those little blue potatoes and this salad is perfect for Fourth of July parties. Trader Joe's sells all three potatoes in one bag. And if you want to jazz it up a bit, add sweet potatoes too! Red, White & Blue Potato Salad is even better at room temperature than cold.
