  • Ready In

  1. Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, 15 to 20 minutes; drain.
  2. Combine chicken broth, vinegar, and oil in a large pot; bring to a boil. Add onion to broth mixture; cook until onion is desired tenderness, 2 to 6 minutes. Remove pot from heat and add potatoes, bacon, and dill; gently stir, adding more chicken broth if needed to moisten salad. Season potato salad with salt and pepper.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Any variety of potato can be used. Do not chop evenly; various sizes will create a more interesting texture.
  • Vegetable broth can be substituted for chicken broth.

I added more vinegar and a tarragon shiitake mushroom salt blend to give it a little extra flavor..otherwise it was delicious!

We liked this. The fresh dill is delicious in here. I ended up with too much liquid, even though my potatoes were piping hot when the liquid was added. Not a big deal, just wanted to note tha...

Very good! I substituted green onions since they are plentiful in my garden and used turkey bacon. Have served warm and cold - good either way.
