Ingredients & Substitutions
- Yukon gold potatoes - You can substitute russet potatoes for a more traditional potato salad, but you can also make potato salad with red potatoes instead.
- Mayonnaise - Miracle Whip is a good substitute.
- Sour cream
- White vinegar - Apple cider vinegar can be substituted, but the cleaner flavor of white vinegar pairs much better with fresh dill.
- Dijon mustard - Yellow mustard can be substituted.
- White sugar - This can be omitted, but sugar does take the edge off the sharpness of the vinegar.
- Lemon juice - One juiced lemon is perfect. Otherwise, bottled lemon juice is great too.
- Sweet onion - You can substitute a red onion for a stronger flavor, or add green onions for additional freshness.
- Fresh dill - Avoid using dried dill, it will have a big impact on the flavor.

How to make it
To make this creamy dill potato salad recipe, start by boiling your cubed potatoes in a large pot of salted water until fork tender. This will take approximately ten minutes, depending on the size of your potatoes.
While the potatoes boil, prepare the dressing mixture by combining all the remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
Once the potatoes are tender, drain them from the water in a large colander and rinse the hot potatoes under cold water to cool them completely. Once cooled, fold them into the potato salad dressing with a rubber spatula.
Leftover potato salad with dill should be stored in the refrigerator for up to five days in an airtight container, or covered in plastic wrap. For the best flavor, it is recommended to make potato salad at least two hours in advance so the flavors in the creamy dressing have time to meld together.
