This potato salad is a refreshing alternative to the mayonnaise based version. The potatoes and the red onions are roasted with garlic for maximum flavor! Then throw in crispy bacon & blue cheese, drizzle on a simple, flavorful vinaigrette and sprinkle on chopped scallions for brightness! This will be a favorite!
