Warm Asparagus and New Potato Salad

We ate this warm potato salad for dinner tonight with baby potatoes from my garden. I never knew fresh potatoes could taste so good! I was hesitant when I read that blue cheese is the topping for this yummy salad but if you buy a good quality cheese the taste really compliments the potatoes.

  • 1 lb asparagus, trimmed, cut into 2-inch lengths and steamed until just tender
  • 1 lb small new potatoes (red or brown), unpeeled, boiled in salted water to cover until just tender, about 10 minutes, drained, and halved or quartered depending on size
  • 1 bunch (6-8) green onions, white and light green parts only, sliced
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 c chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 c extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 T balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 crumbled blue cheese
In a large bowl toss together the asparagus, potatoes and green onions. Season well with salt and pepper.

In a small bowl beat together the parsley, oil and vinegar. Toss some of the dressing with the vegetables. Continue to add dressing until the salad is well moistened.  Serve just warm, topped with the blue cheese.
