I have to admit, I have never, ever been a big fan of potato salad. I will eat it, as in nibble a bite or two, but I don’t ever crave it.

Creamy Dill Potato Salad Recipe

Well that was until a few years ago, my sister in law had a barbecue and had the best creamy potato salad. I was totally shocked that it was one of those prepared salads from Walmart! What?

I have even bought it on several occasions and I seriously love it. I decided I should try to make a homemade version.

I kept putting off making this potato salad because I thought it would take a long time and be a hassle. Actually, it is really easy. It only took about 15 minutes for the potatoes to cook and the dressing was a snap.

How to Make Creamy Dill Potato Salad:

  • Boil small potatoes whole, until fork tender, about 15- 20 minutes. I like red potatoes or Yukon golds for this recipe.
  • Drain the potatoes and rinse in cool water. Set aside to cool.
  • Dice some green onions, both white and green parts and some fresh parsley.
  • Whisk up the dressing using mayonnaise, sour cream, dijon mustard, dill, garlic, salt and pepper.
  • Cut the potatoes into bite- size pieces and mix together with the onions, parsley and dressing.
  • Mix together and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.

We had such a fun time grilling out on Friday night, I want to make it a weekly thing this summer. It’s pretty easy to talk the kids into coming over when we are grilling and the pool is just right for swimming.

We have been working to get the pool clean and ready to go. Boy do I need that exercise! It makes me feel so much better after a long day of sitting at the computer. Not to mention those extra winter pounds that I seem to have accumulated.

Swimming is about the only exercise that I don’t hate. I’m such a lazy bones and I keep thinking I am going to do better but you know how that goes. This middle- age spread is getting the better of me these days.

So I’m determined to be more active this summer and have lots of fun while I’m at it. I would love to hear what y’all have planned this summer.

Creamy Dill Potato Salad


      1. Hi Barb,
        I would suggest tripling it for 25 people. My recipe serves 8 so, I would think tripling it would be close enough for 25.
        ~ Milisa

  1. Made this and used fresh dill (about a 1/4 cup; chopped) instead of the dried and added about 3/4 cup of finely chopped celery. Absolutely delicious! This is my go-to potato salad from now on.
