Creamy Dill Potatoes Recipe

Dill and potatoes go together like peanut butter and jelly.

It’s an amazing, comforting combination that brings zest and warmth to your meal, with very little effort. Just boil the potatoes, whip together the 6-ingredient dill sauce, and combine!

The creamy sauce is no-cook and uses a hit of lemon juice and whole grain mustard to round out the flavor profile. You get acidity, a bit of heat and that zesty, bitter dill in a luxurious sour cream-based sauce.

This potato side dish works great in summer or winter and can be served warm or cold, so you can easily double the batch and enjoy some of the potatoes hot right after you make it, and then enjoy the refrigerated “dill potato salad” for a few days afterwards. (The flavors get even more pronounced after a day in the fridge.)

I love the versatility of this recipe.

Do I need to use fresh dill for this recipe? Fresh dill is definitely going to give you the best flavor and is worth splurging on for this recipe. You can use a teaspoon of dried dill in it’s place if you absolutely need to, but you won’t have the same flavor profile.

What are the best potatoes to use for creamy dill potatoes? I personally like the waxy, toothsome texture of new or red potatoes in this recipe, but if you prefer fall-apart potatoes like russet or gold, they will definitely work in this recipe, as well.

Can I add chopped dill pickles instead of fresh dill? It’s not going to give you the same flavor profile, but a lot of German Potato Salads use chopped dill pickles to achieve the dill flavor so while I think it will still out delicious, it won’t taste exactly the same.

What dishes should I pair Creamy Dill Potatoes with? Creamy dill potatoes pairs well with so many main courses – beef, chicken or seafood, Greek, Swedish or British cuisine. It’s one of those side dishes that you can pair with just about anything, so it’s a great recipe to have in your collection.
