Vegetarian or not, you can never go wrong with potato salad, especially one prepared from the world’s best recipe. Salad is one of those quick dishes that carry both plenty of nutrients and the yummiest taste. To give you an idea, a typical salad contains loads of vitamins A, B, C, E, and K, as well as nutrients and antioxidants such as beta carotene, folate, fibre, and calcium.
In this case, potatoes are rich in potassium, folate, vitamins C and B6, proteins, carbs, and a little sugar. Adding blue cheese to your salad, lets you enjoy a great taste and also some health benefits, one more reason to try it in your kitchen.
