Dill … So Many Uses, Potato Salad Is A Good One!

Three years ago I brought home this amazing dill dip from the store thinking it would be great with veggies, but to my surprise I didn’t like it! I had just become pregnant with my daughter and that was one of the many things I could not stand. However, my husband loved it with everything, so every week I brought home more dill dip for my husband.

To my utter dismay after 2 years of bringing home the dip it was GONE! I went to the store and it wasn’t there! That was bad, bad, bad because I had gone to get it for my dill potato salad I was making for my clients. What now? What do I tell them? I can’t tell them anything! I have to fix this! So, I figured it out and the Dill Potato Salad became “the best potato salad in the world,” according to my husband. This is a slight bummer because I don’t think he will be happy if I try to play with different kinds of potato salad – I am stuck. But stuck as I am it doesn’t really bother me because I love the potato salad, too.

Before you can make the potato salad you need to make the dill dip, which I also use the dry mix as a dill sauce/dressing.

Dill Dip
Printable Recipe

Dry Mix:
1 tsp. dried dill weed
1 tsp. Beau Monde seasoning (by Spice Island)
1 Tbl. dried parsley
1/2 Tbl. onion powder
1/8 tsp. garlic powder

1.) Mix the spices together. I like to grind them up in my Bullet for a finer texture.

Dip:
mix from above
1 c. sour cream
2/3 c. mayonnaise with olive oil

1.) Mix the sour cream and mayonnaise together until well mixed; add in the dry dill mix and stir until well combined.

2.) Chill for at least 1 hour.

(In order to make a dressing you add 1 c. buttermilk, 1 c. mayonnaise and the dry mix and stir until well blended.)

Dill Potato Salad
yield – 12 servings
Printable Recipe

3 lb red potatoes
1 c. mayonnaise with  olive oil
1 c. dill dip (recipe above)
1 Tbl. dried dill weed (optional – we use because we want the additional dill flavor)
4 green onions, chopped
2 eggs, hard-boiled

1.) Wash and scrub the red potatoes and cut into 1/2 inch cubes. Place potatoes in a large pan, cover with water, and boil for about 10 to 15 minutes until fork tender, but not mushy. Drain water from potatoes and place in a large mixing bowl. Cool for about 15 to 20 minutes.

2.) In a small mixing bowl, combine the mayonnaise, dill dip and additional dried dill weed, set aside.

3.) Chop the green onions.

4.) Chop the hard-boiled eggs.

5.) Combine the potatoes and dill mixture and stir until potatoes are well coated. Gently mix in the green onions and hard-boiled eggs.

6.) Serve warm or chilled.

This potato salad is great with burgers, ribs, smoked brisket, Pepsi BBQ Chicken and just about anything else you can think about. Enjoy!

    I have seen Amy’s potato salad win over those who don’t even like potato salad. We were at a neighborhood cookout a couple months ago and as good as all the other things were at the cookout, the one thing everybody went back for 2nd’s and 3rd’s was Amy’s Dill Potato Salad. My personal preference is to have it warm…but it is good cold too.

  2. I am not a potato salad fan, but I love dill! I use it is salads and on roasted potatoes as well as tomato cucumber salad! Dill makes me think of my childhood, as it is a very Scandinavian and we had a lot of it growing up!

    Visiting via #SITS31DBBB. I just grew some dill in my garden this year and excited to be using fresh dill that ** I ** grew!! btw, thanks so much for posting Dill Dip recipe. I got this recipe years ago from my aunt and lost it. All I remember was that it used a seasoning (Beau Monde) that I normally do not have on hand. I recognized it as soon as I saw it!!

    • I am so glad I was able to help out. It is a staple in our house. My son and husband eat it on everything! I need to grow dill since we love it so much. Thank you for stopping by.
