Dill Potato Salad – Simple and Delicious

Martin wanted me to make a Dill Potato Salad.  He has this potato salad when he goes to The Cookery in Door County.  He wanted to see if I could replicate the recipe.  The salad I made was very good but not quite the same as the restaurant.  Each time it will get better and better.  I may even surpass the awesomeness of The Cookery!  Here is my recipe;

Dill Potato Salad

October 008 (I will get a better photo next time!!)


3 pounds red salad potatoes (cut into bite size pieces before boiling)
1/2 cup Italian Salad Dressing
3/4 cup mayonnaise (NOT Miracle Whip)
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup chopped scallions (the green part only)
3 Tablespoons chopped, fresh dill
1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt (could have used more.  Next time 1/2 teaspoon)
1/8 teaspoon ground pepper


  1.  Bring potatoes to a boil in large pot of water.  Cook until tender and drain.  Place potatoes in in bowl and put 1/4 cup of the Italian Salad Dressing over the potatoes.  Mix together and place in refrigerator for 30 minutes to cool.
  2. While potatoes are cooling, in a large bowl, combine all above ingredients, including the other 1/4 cup of the dressing.  After 30 minutes of cooling, place potatoes in the large bowl and stir until coated.
  3. Place in refrigerator for a couple of hours for the flavors to blend together.

That is it.  Very Simple and Delicious.  Enjoy!!
