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!

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.

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 prepare your dill pickle pasta salad a couple times a month. We like it very much. Today I wanted a dill pickle potato salad so I immediately came to your site and found this one.
    It is just as good as your dill pickle pasta salad. A real winner.
    Thank you for another great recipe. My pickle loving granddaughter is very pleased.
    I’ve put your recipe in my make this again file.5 stars

  2. I’ve made this once and it was the absolute best potato salad! I would put pickles on and in anything if I could!
    I am making this for a second time because the whole family requested it. This time I’m adding black olives to switch it up.

    I had a quick question. I see the nutritional info but I wondered, What is the serving size?5 stars

  3. Made 1/3 the size of recipe and it turned out great. Did add 1/4 of a minced jalapeño, as I enjoy my foods a tad spicy, Highly Recommend.5 stars

  4. My Mom made this version of potato salad and I have made it many times. She always added some chopped onion. Mom used Russet Potatoes chopped. When she wanted to wow people, she would slice some small pickles that she had canned and use those really small onions. She often added pimento to pump up the visual.5 stars

  5. Dill pickles are one of my absolute favorite snacks! Can’t wait to give this revamped classic a try, using one of my favorite snacks as the star ingredient!5 stars

  6. I had dill pickle dip a little while ago and was surprised that I loved it. Obviously, now I must try this dill pickle potato salad – sounds SO good!

  7. 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!

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

  9. Just made this recipe for our Labor Day  weekend party , tastes so yummy , can’t wait  till everyone tries it, know it will be a hit!  

  10. 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)

  11. I am not one to usually leave comments but I had to for this recipe! I made this today to go with our smoked bbq ribs which are usually the hit of the meal but today the potato salad was all the talk. This was very delicious and will be a staple in our house! Thank you for sharing
