Tangy Dill Pickle Potato Salad

Ingredients & Preparation Details

  • Potatoes: Use red potatoes for their firm texture which holds up well in salads. Coat them in olive oil, dry ranch dressing mix, and dried dill weed for roasting. If red potatoes aren’t available, Yukon gold or fingerling potatoes are excellent substitutes.
  • Onions: Red onions provide a beautiful color and mild flavor, but shallots or green onions can be used for a milder taste.
  • Bacon: Oven-baking the bacon until crispy enhances the salad’s texture and flavor. If preferred, you can omit the bacon for a vegetarian version.
  • Eggs: Hard-boiled eggs add richness to the salad. Chop them to your preference and consider setting some aside for garnishing the dish.
  • Pickles: Dill pickles not only contribute crunch and tang but using the pickle juice as part of the dressing infuses the salad with more dill flavor.
  • Dressing: A simple blend of mayonnaise and yellow mustard forms the base of the creamy dressing. Homemade mayonnaise will elevate the dish, but store-bought works in a pinch. Miracle Whip is not recommended due to its sweetness.
  • Dill: While dried dill is convenient, fresh dill can be used for a more vibrant flavor; adjust quantities accordingly as fresh herbs are generally more potent than dried.

Make Ahead Tips

  • Bacon and hard-boiled eggs can be prepared ahead and stored in the refrigerator.
  • Onions can be diced in advance.
  • Although best served warm with the potatoes freshly roasted, they can be reheated before mixing with the other ingredients to refresh their texture and enhance the salad’s overall flavor.
