Though it won’t be as vibrant as the other ingredients, this red, white, and blue potato salad is the perfect side dish for an all-American burger or hot dog. 

Makes 6 Servings Prep Time: 10 minutes, Cook Time: 20 minutes


  • 1 lb baby red potatoes
  • 1 lb small purple potatoes
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 5 oz blue cheese
  • ½ cup chopped chives
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. ground mustard
  • ½ tsp. onion powder


  1. First, slice all of your potatoes into halves. For larger potatoes, cut them into fourths.
  2. Then, place the potatoes into a large pot with water. Bring it to a boil and add salt. Boil until the potatoes are tender yet soft, which should take approximately 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Next, strain your potatoes and place them in a large bowl so they can cool at room temp.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the mayo, sour cream, salt, ground mustard, and onion powder. Stir thoroughly.
  5. Then, add the blue cheese and chives to the cooled potatoes before spooning the dressing over the salad, stirring slowly to combine.
  6. Cover and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before serving or displaying.
