If you’ve read my blog, you may have noticed that I have this thing for dill pickles, I truly truly love them.  You’d actually be surprised how many dishes you can add them to.

Dill Pickles are the perfect way to step up your grilled cheese sandwich game (that’s right, Dill Pickle Bacon Grilled Cheese) and honestly make the BEST Pasta Salad you’ve ever had!  They’re perfect fried crispy or even served as a dill pickle dip!

This Dill Pickle Potato Salad is a deliciously creamy side loaded with crunchy dill pickles in a zesty dill pickle juice infused dressing! While a lot of potato salads contain dill pickles in a supporting role, this potato salad makes dill pickles the star for a side that's going to be the hit of any summer bbq!

Red skinned potatoes are the perfect choice for a potato salad they hold their shape while still giving a creamy texture and don’t soak in a ton of water when they’re boiled.  As long as your potatoes have a thin skin (such as red or yukon gold potatoes), there is no need to peel them (if you don’t like skins you can certainly peel them off).

Once the potatoes are cooked and cooled, I like to slightly smash a few of them for a great creamy texture.  You don’t want them completely mashed, you still want to keep the texture and shape of most of the potatoes.

While a lot of potato salads contain dill pickles in a supporting role, this potato salad makes dill pickles the star for a side that's going to be the hit of any summer bbq!

The best onion choice for this recipe is a white onion with white skin, not yellow skin.  The white skinned onions are much milder adding just the right amount of zing to this recipe.

Adding shredded cheddar cheese, chopped hard boiled eggs and/or diced ham will make this delicious salad into a meal! This is the perfect choice for a potluck dinner because not only does everyone love it, it’s best made at least 3-4 hours ahead of time (and can last in the fridge for up to 3 days).

  1. I have a go to potato salad that I make at all holiday or family functions. I think I will shake it up a bit by trying this recipe! I think I might swap out the white vinegar for Apple cider vinegar though! Thanks for the creative pickle twist!

  2. Excellent, only change I made is used sweet and zesty pickle juice but everything else was dill. Everyone loved it

  5. Made the DILL PICKLE POTATO SALAD today Oct 9th. Very EZ to make. I think I would add some small bits of red bell pepper for a pop of color and I think I would like a bit more onion than the recipe calls for. Was really delicious and it’s going to pot luck Thanksgiving Dinner tonight (Canada)
