An abundance of lemon and dill make this Lemony Dill Potato Salad the freshest tasting potato salad I’ve ever made. It has an unexpected bright flavor that makes you stop and savor the first bite.
The salad is lightened up with sour cream for half the mayo and that adds an extra tanginess as well. My whole family enjoys this salad and I happily stash any leftover servings in the back of the refrigerator for my own lunch the following day.
I’ve been making this salad for several years now and it always gets great reviews. I love the simplicity of this salad for potlucks and family dinners. It is a great side dish with Filthy Burgers, Garlic and Paprika Rubbed Steaks, or Pan-Fried Italian Chicken.

Kitchen Tip: I like to use these bowls when I make this recipe. (The lids are great for chilling in the refrigerator.)

    Good morning, What type of potatoes do you recommend using? Peeled or unpeeled? They look peeled in your photo. Thanks!

      I typically peel the potatoes for this particular recipe, if I’m using russets or reds, Cheryl. If I’m using Yukon or gold potatoes, the skins are so thin, I leave them on.

      Not a silly question at all, Shannon. Any method will work. I typically bake extra potatoes and use the leftovers for potato salads. (I actually like the texture best that way too!)
