Made with sour cream, lemon juice, a little mayo, red potatoes and tangy dried dill, this quick & easy recipe makes the most delicious Creamy Dill Potato Salad! Not too fussy with only a few ingredients, this potato salad is the perfect side dish for burgers, BBQ chicken and virtually anything on the grill!
These potatoes are guaranteed to be the star of your next potluck, cookout or get together! They are spot on for rounding out almost any meal, the perfect partner for a sandwich and even have the chops enough to claim a spot on holiday tables. They never disappoint!
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.
What You Need To Make Creamy Dill Potato Salad
- baby red potatoes
- sour cream
- real mayonnaise
- dijon mustard
- lemon juice
- green onions
- dry dill weed
- salt & pepper
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.
Making Ahead, Storing Leftovers & Other Tips
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.
