Sweet potatoes aren't as popular here in New England as in some parts of the country. I had a friend from Maryland many years ago, however, and we enjoyed swapping recipes. This one's a combination of hers and one I already had in my file.
Grilling potatoes is an all too rare means of preparing America's most popular vegetable. And nothing says summer like grilling and potato salad. The blue cheese and bacon give a unique twist on the traditional side dish. —Lindsay Sprunk, Noblesville, Indiana
I fix this potato salad when we're entertaining at home or to take to picnics and potluck suppers. I get lots of compliments and recipe requests from family and friends.—Ethel Selway, Middletown, Delaware
I revamped my mother's potato salad recipe to taste more like baked potatoes with all the fixin's, which I love. It's now the most requested dish at family gatherings...even my mother asked for the recipe!

My family was tired of the same old potato salad at family functions, so I created this with the ingredients I had on hand. Now I'm always asked to bring it to get-togethers. —Tami Gallagher, Eagan, Minnesota
I was tired of the ordinary potato salads served so often in summer, so I came up with this hearty flavorful variation. My family has enjoyed it now for several years, and I'm asked to make it whenever there's a get-together or cookout. I'm sure you'll like it as much as we do.
