Potato salad is just one of the recipes that everyone loves.  It’s easy to make ahead of time and can contain lots of different additions (like bacon and cheese)!

This is one of my favorite potato salad recipes of all time!  It’s rich and creamy and loaded with fresh dill.  I love the flavor of fresh dill…  it just screams SUMMER to me!!   A perfect side for any BBQ or picnic!

If you’re looking for a lightened up version of potato salad, this recipe is very easy to adapt!  You can replace 2/3 of the mayo with Greek yogurt and it is delicious! (Nobody will ever know! ;) .  I actually substitute Greek yogurt for part of the mayo into most creamy recipes and it works perfectly!  I start with about 2/3 mayo to 1/3 yogurt and make adjustments from there!

  1. Made this for July 4th bbq! It reminds me of the potato salad at IKEA – dill is used a lot in Swedish cuisine! This was well liked, and I’m already looking for an excuse to make it again, hopefully with dill from the garden next time. Even my husband who doesn’t usually like sour cream or yogurt enjoyed it.5 stars

  2. Delicious! I received many compliments on this and would not hesitate to make again. I added 3 chopped up hard boiled eggs and substituted white vinegar for the lemon juice.5 stars
