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.

The list goes on and on as well as the subtle variance of the ingredients used in the salads.

There is nothing like a fresh batch of creamy, delicious potato salad served with Southern-style baked beans and hot burgers 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.

In my opinion, the dried version of parsley and dill don’t taste the same in the Sour Cream and Dill Potato Salad.

You can serve the Sour Cream and Dill Potato Salad warm or cold, depending on your taste preferences. Both ways are delicious tasting. Just curious, which way does your family prefer to eat theirs? Hot, cold, or room temperature? Let me know in the comments below. I love hearing from Y’all.

    I couldn’t agree more, a summer get together is not a get together unless there is potato salad. Love this rendition of a classic dish.

    I’ve never thought about adding pimentos to my potato salad but I like it! I definitely like my potato salad cold!
