Potato Salad with Arugula, Peas, and Dill is a fantastic potato salad perfect for any season; made with sliced Red Potatoes, Peppery Arugula, Red Onions, Feta cheese, Sweet Peas, garden Fresh Dill weed, dressed in a creamy deliciously thick Greek Yogurt sauce.
A few years back my friend and Author of Erica’s Recipes Blog made a wonderful potato salad that I used in a Blogger Roundup called, “20 Salads to remember this Summer” on my blog. I fell in love hardcore with her salad called Spring Potato Salad with Arugula, Peas, and Dill to the point of instantly being inspired to make a revamped version of my own for you guys.
What did I keep?…
Erica was brilliant combining Red Potatoes, Peppery Arugula, Sweet Peas, and Fresh Dill weed herbs, those, of course, would stay. Heck, those are the ingredients that drew my attention from the start after seeing her recipe.
What Did I Change/Add?…
I can’t help myself when following a recipe I end up making changes often, and Erica’s beautiful recipe would also be adapted slightly for our dietary needs so the amount of mayo would be changed to only 1/4 of a cup.
I’m also big on my regular Dukes Mayo VS low-fat or fat-free that would have to change. I decided to use Plain Greek Yogurt instead of the sour cream, I could kill two birds with one stone so to speak – a little less mayo and omitting the sour cream.
I decided to also add Herb Feta cheese, red salad onions, lemon zest and the juice of 1 lemon to add more flavor since I cut down a few ingredients that were in the original recipe Erica made and to tie together the other ingredients I added.
Below you will find my recipe for Spring Potato Salad with Arugula, Peas, and Dill that was inspired by my friend Erica the Author of Erica’s Recipes delicious and wonderful salad creation called Spring Potato Salad with Arugula, Peas, and Dill.
