Is potato salad pedestrian to you? If so, then you have to try this Dill Potato Salad.Jump to Recipe
My potato salad is a real winner. I first made this recipe a while back for a family BBQ. It was a huge hit. The only thing I can’t tell you is if I liked it more than the rest of the family. I am not sure what makes this potato salad so tasty. The combination of the ingredients is a winner. I have also really come to enjoy dill – which is the key ingredient in this recipe.
The dish has 8 ingredients – 4 for the dressing and 4 for the potato texture. What I like about the potatoes is they show up in two ways in this recipe. The potatoes are initially boiled to AL DENTE. But the key is the potatoes are incorporated in 2 ways. A portion of the potatoes are lightly mashed and the other portion is chopped.
The one thing I did differently with this recipe was the addition of the hard boiled eggs. Thanks for your help AJ. My sous chef, AKA my wife, is the hard boiled egg maker in the family. I love what they add to the dish. Lastly, the cornichon pickles are the best pickles to use for the recipe.
