"This is a great alternative to the familiar yellow potato salad. The dried dill weed is much more potent than fresh and alleviates some of the blandness of similar recipes." — Tsubaki

new red potatoes
dried dill weed
green onions, chopped
salt and ground black pepper to taste
Simple and delicious! If you love the flavor of dill, you'll LOVE this potato salad! It tastes a little bit like "sour cream and onion" due to the green onion in this. I followed the recipe exactly, using the optional salt and cracked black pepper. To lighten it up I used Hellman's lite mayo and light sour cream. I really wouldn't change much with this except maybe to use a bit less dill - 1 & 1/2 Tbsp. next time. This is a definite keeper when you want a quick, great tasting potato salad.
I liked the idea of this for its simplicity but found it pretty tasteless before I did a lot of doctoring. I added a lot more dill (I used fresh), celery salt, Jane’s Krazy Mixed Up Salt, and some thinly sliced radishes and celery. There was also a little too much mayonnaise for my liking, so I mellowed out the tang with more sour cream. Basic recipes are nice to build upon, but they should also stand alone on their own merits without tinkering being necessary.
After making a few minor changes such as adding a little celery seed and increasing the sour cream to 1 cup and decreasing the dillweed to 1-1/2 TBSP, we found this to be a wonderful potato salad.
Really simple and very tasty. I added celery which just gave it a nice crunch.
This is very good. Reminds me of vegetable dip. A shortcut is to slice your potatoes into bite sized pieces before you boil them.
This was a very good and simple potato salad! I did add just a little celery seed, will make this again & again!
best homemade potato saled ever. used only 1 1/2 tbsp dill and upped the sour cream to a cup. yummy. oh and i used light mayo.
I first did this with the potatoes to thick and so it was good but when i made the pieces smaller it made a world of difference. This recipe taste the same as my fav from Antone's sandwiches.
