It’s true though, right? Fall’s cooler temps come along and your body instantly craves comfort food.

That’s exactly what I thought of when making this salad. It’s September. To me, September comfort equals apples and potatoes. I’m not really ready for squash yet (you pumpkin, butternut, acorn, kabocha freaks need to chill until next month) but crispy red potatoes sound perfect right about now.

The raisins, pepitas and rotisserie chicken bring a deliciously sweet, crunchy and salty profile to each bite. Then there’s the dressing… the Kraft blue cheese dressing just makes this salad. It’s creamy and the perfect tangy addition to balance out all the other flavors.

  1. I can imagine how delicious this potato salad tasted.. definitely craving a bowl of it right now. Pinned!

  2. Oooooh this sounds wonderful!!! Who is guilty? not me :D I am making a salad tonight…..and other than chicken, I have all the ingredients for this, maybe I should give it a go instead of my throw together random salad. I have to make the most of m veggies before I have to cut them out as Chicago comes close and I need to carb up. Thanks for the recipe, if I don’t make tonight, I am pinning for later! YUM!

  3. I am definitely guilty of ignoring salads. Which is weird because they are totally a favorite thing! But this salad with all its crunchy, creamy goodness? I am allll over it.

    I’m also over kabocha squash 100% of the year. Sorry. Pinned!
