Gorgonzola Garlic Chive Pea Shoot Potato Salad

2 lb red skin potatoes, quartered (and cooked)
1 cup 1/4 inch chopped garlic chives
1 cup pea shoots, woody stems removed

3/4 cup crumbled Gorgonzola
1/4 cup mayo
3/4 cup Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper


Place the potatoes, shoots and garlic chives in a large bowl. In a medium bowl, combine the dressing ingredients. Drizzle over the potatoes and toss to coat. Chill 1 hour before serving if possible.

My thoughts:

This is basically June in a potato salad. Pea shoots, potatoes and garlic chives are all in season here in Baltimore right now and I combined them to form one wonderful salad. I love the mild garlic flavor the chives added and the pea shoots added the right amount of sweet crispness. I had gorgonzola leftover from making dressing so that was a logical addition and added a lovely savory note that contrasted with the fresh vegetables without making the whole salad seem heavy. Yum. The perfect salad for a picnic.

PS: My husband said that is the best potato salad he has ever had.


  1. I live in Boston and my sister lives in Tacoma Park. Yesterday we were comparing our CSA boxes. It looks like you guys are about a week ahead of us, so next week I'll have all the ingredients for this lovely-looking potato salad.

  2. Well, I think you solved my problem of what to buy at the market this weekend. I still think it is funny that I followed your blog for month's before noticing that you were in Baltimore too!

  3. So Very Domestic

    Wowzers. Now there's a potato salad recipe!! Thanks, that's a must-try for sure.

  4. I made this today for a company BBQ. We couldn't find pea shoots, so I substituted actual snap peas (sliced). It added a nice sweet crunch to the potato salad! I will be making this recipe again. Thanks!
