These blue potatoes were a little unusual, but I thought they were so cute for Fourth of July. Potato salad is a classic summer picnic side dish, but this one also has the red white and blue theme. Desserts are often patriotic colors, but this was interesting to be able to make a color themed side dish. I was afraid it would be hard to find these potatoes, but they were pretty easy to find, my grocery store had them in a bag, they were called Star Spangled Potatoes, and they had red, white, and blue potatoes all in one bag.
Look back the next few days for more Fourth of July recipes.

This turned out looking pretty festive. The blue potatoes didn't taste any different than regular potatoes. We used a bit too much vinegar in ours, but I think 1 Tbsp would be a good amount, it might be a good idea to add a little bit and test, and add more if you need it.
