Caper & Dill Hearty Potato Salad Recipe

Saturday, July 6, 2019

A very easy and very flavorful potato salad I have ben making for years!


Ingredients needed :

2-3 pound red or yukon gold potatoes
2 cups mayonnaise ( I prefer Best Foods Classic)
1/2 cup chopped green onion
1 cup sliced radishes
1/2 cup chopped fresh dill
1/4 cup capers
2 tablespoon mustard
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 cup sliced dill pickles
5 hard boiled eggs (prefer an 11 minute boil for this)
1/8 to 1/4 pink Himalayan sea salt  teaspoon salt (this can vary to your taste)

In large pot fill with water and add salt. Bring to boil. (Salt is important to add to all vegetables boiling water!)



Chop potatoes into slightly larger than bite size pieces.


Boil potatoes until tender. Remove and place on tray in fridge to cool.

Meanwhile prepare dressing for salad. Combine in medium bowl mayonnaise, green onion, radishes, dill, capers, dill pickles mustard and paprika. Let sit in fridge 30 minutes while potatoes cool to increase flavor.

Rough chop egg and add to large bowl with both potatoes and dressing. Lightly fold all ingredients until well mixed without breaking up potatoes. Check for salt needed as capers add salt to this mix .. you can add desired amount. I typically add about 1/4 teaspoon.

DONE!

You can enjoy right away or leave in fridge covered to add more flavor.
