Sour Cream and Dill Potato Salad

Sour Cream and Dill Potato Salad is one of the Easiest potato salads ever. Made with small new potatoes, spring onions, pimentos, sour cream, mayonnaise,  and fresh dill weed from the herb garden. No summer gathering is complete without a side of potato salad. This sour cream and dill version will become your go-to recipe.

Sour Cream and Dill Potato Salad is a  different twist on traditional mayonnaise-based potato salad, this one is simple to make and delicious to eat.I love that the sour cream gives not only a new spin on a classic tradition but also adds a lighter texture to the salad.

Potato salad is one of those side dishes that seem to pop up in so many cultures, I have had the pleasure of having Puerto Rican Potato Salad, Italian Potato Salad, German Potato Salad, Irish, Southern Potato Salad, Cajun Potato Salad, Greek, and yes even Hawaiian Potato Salad. The list goes on and on as well as the subtle variance of the ingredients used in the salads.sour-cream-and-dill-potato-salad

There is nothing like a fresh batch of creamy delicious potato salad served with Southern-style baked beans and hot burger off the Bbq during the warm summer months. Combine that with a cold refreshing glass of iced tea and I am telling you, you are going to have one happy family sitting at the dinner table.sour-cream-and-dill-potato-salad-2I like using unskinned small potatoes in this just because when halved potatoes make the perfect bite on your fork, freshly picked garden herbs and spring onions are a must for this salad. In my opinion, the dried version of parsley and dill just don’t taste the same in the Sour Cream and Dill Potato Salad. sour-cream-and-dill-potato-salad-3
