Summer is over and fall is upon us: the season of pumpkin spiced everything! The barbeque has been, unfortunately, covered up…but we can reminisce on the good use we got out of her this past summer.

Remember those blue cheese stuffed burgers? Oh heavens. And the perfect side for those burgers is this ever-so-creamy blue cheese potato salad.

It has bacon in it.

That is all you need to know to realize that it is simply perfect. Because bacon is all that matters, right?

And honestly, I’m not generally a big fan of potato salad. It’s usually the last thing I put on my plate, but this potato salad…this is the exception. It’s light, includes the ever-desired bacon, and has blue cheese as the kicker. The combination of bacon and blue cheese should be a crime, plain and simple.

It’s just the best thing ever!
