I first tried this dill potato salad at a potluck. It was brought by a friend’s acquaintance and I practically begged to share a recipe. I’ve accumulated my fair share of potato salad recipes over the years, but there was some kind of subtle difference in this one that I couldn’t quite place at first.

The person who brought this salad to the potluck was kind enough to share the recipe and the secret ingredient was… sour cream. Mixed with traditional dressing of mayonnaise and dijon mustard, it adds the necessary amount of creaminess without making the salad too heavy.

I would also recommend not swapping granulated garlic for the real thing, unless you want dragon breath. Or, alternatively, you’ll have to chop the garlic really fine or mince it in a garlic squeezer, that will do the trick somewhat.

Herbs, on the contrary, can be both fresh or dry. One dry and one fresh also is great. The fresh herbs not only add the flavor and aroma, but also a bit of a bite and crispiness, so it’s best to include them.

This salad is very rich and creamy and served at any party or potluck, it will be a hit. I hope you have fun with this recipe!
