Creamy Dill Potato Salad Ingredients


What is it about potato salad that makes it so delicious? The fluffy potatoes, the cool, tangy dressing…  there’s just something about that combination that is so hard to resist!  And while I am usually all about traditional southern potato salad with the pickles and eggs and the whole nine yards, I love to switch it up every now and then with this simple salad of skin-on baby reds.


Easy Dill Potato Salad with Red Potatoes


This easy salad features just a few green onions, some finely diced celery and a creamy dill dressing that’s equal parts mayo and sour cream.  Want to lighten it up a bit?  Half the mayo with Greek yogurt!  Still deliciously rich and creamy, no one will ever be the wiser.




One of the best things about this potato salad (other than the fabulously cool and creamy dressing) is that it can be made in advance, and leftovers (with this salad?  never!) are easily stored.  When covered tightly, Creamy Dill Potato Salad has a fridge life of 3-4 days.  This recipe is also easily doubled when you need to feed a crowd.
