Easy Potato Salad with Capers & Dill

Potato Salad close up from above

This potato salad has to be one of the best and easiest salads I’ve ever made. It’s just delicious. While the pickles give it some crunch, the mayo makes it really creamy. And of course, there’s potatoes which are delicious to begin with. The fresh dill gives this salad some much needed freshness and if you ask me, you can never go wrong with adding capers and mustard to your potato salad.

I find that potato salads have something very humbling about them. They remind me of summer picnics and overall good times. This recipe has proven itself to be a crowd pleaser. It works great as part of a bigger spread, for example at a BBQ but I also like to make it for weekday lunches.

Personally I like using cocktail potatoes for this salad, but you can also use larger waxy potatoes and cut them into bite sized pieces.

    1. Hi Megan – I’m so sorry for the late reply, I was on holiday and didn’t take my laptop with me. Did you end up trying the salad using the dried dill? If so, please let me know how it went. Otherwise, I’d suggest starting with 1/2 tsp dried dill and add more to your liking after you’ve tasted the salad.
