Post Buttermilk & Blue Cheese Potato Salad

Buttermilk & Blue Cheese Potato Salad

5 large potatoes, preferably red-skinned
1 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup mayonnaise, preferably light
2 tbsp grainy Dijon mustard
1 tbsp white vinegar
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 celery stalks
2 green onions
1 each green and red pepper
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese, Stilton or Roquefort

Cut unpeeled potatoes in half and place in a large saucepan. Cover with cold water. Partially cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium. Gently boil just until fork-tender, 15 to 18 min.

Meanwhile, pour buttermilk into a large bowl. Whisk in mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper. Thinly slice celery. Thinly slice green onions diagonally. Core and seed peppers, then coarsely chop. Stir into dressing with celery and onions.

Drain potatoes. As soon as they are cool enough to handle, cut into 1-in. chunks. Add to bowl with dressing and crumble in blue cheese.
Gently toss to evenly mix. Delicious warm or at room temperature.
Salad will keep well, covered and refrigerated, up to 2 days. Before serving, bring to room temperature. Stir in more buttermilk, cheese or salt, if needed. Makes 8 cups for 6 servings
