Change up your traditional creamy potato salad with this dill potato salad using red potatoes and fresh dill. It’s the perfect side for summer barbecues and cook outs.

Today I am participating in the Secret Recipe Club, showcasing recipes from blogs we’ve been secretly cooking from this month. What makes the Secret Recipe Club even more fun is finally getting paired up with a blog that had yours in the past.

This month I was assigned to Melissa’s blog Fried Ice and Donut Holes and she previously was assigned to mine when she made my Greek Yogurt Everything Bagels which was super awesome as that recipe was the result of when I was going through my experimenting-with-Greek-yogurt-in-yeast-breads-and-pastas phase. Always nice to get validation that an experimental recipe worked for others!


After reading through her extensive list of recipes, I settled on the dill potato salad as I thought it would be the perfect side to kick start grilling season. Normally I would never stray from my dad’s potato salad but this dill laiden one sounded like a must make.

Instead of mayonnaise it should come as no surprise that I used plain Greek yogurt but other than that I did not alter the ingredients. I brought it to a cookout at my friend’s housewarming party last weekend and it was quite the hit.

Next I have got to try the recipe for Caprese Eggs Benedict for One! The Buffalo Chicken Salad with Creamy Avocado Ranch Dressing and obviously the Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Pretzel Tart were also high on my list of things to make this month. Head on over to Fried Ice and Donut Holes for these and other great recipes.

Dill Potato Salad


Yield: 6-8 servings Prep Time: Cooking Time:
Nutrition facts: 200 calories 20 grams fat


  • 3 lb. red potatoes
  • 1 egg (still in its shell)
  • 1 Tbsp Salt
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 Tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup fresh dill, chopped
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup celery, chopped
  • 1/2 cup red onion, chopped


  1. Place the potatoes, egg, and salt in a large pot of cold water. Bring the water to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for about 15-20 minutes, until the potatoes are tender and can easily be pierced with a knife. Drain the potatoes and egg and set aside to cool slightly.
  2. Meanwhile in a large bowl, whisk together the yogurt, buttermilk, mustard, dill, and black pepper. Set aside.
  3. When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut them into quarters. Peel the egg and chop. Add potatoes, egg, celery, and onion to the large bowl with the yogurt mixture and gently toss to coat. Refrigerate for at least an hour or overnight to allow for the flavors to meld. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

I always like to visit on Reveal Day, and for the most part leave a comment on every post. But this month we are traveling and won’t be back until Friday, so it’s been harder to do it…

but little by little I visited everyone…

New potato salad recipes are always welcome at this time of year! Time to switch it up from whatever we made last year. Love the dill in this! It’s one of my favorite herbs.

Dill and potatoes is a great flavour combination. This was a great SRC pick this month, and I love that you chose to use Greek yoghurt in the dressing – one of my favourite ingredients.

Melissa April 27, 2015 - 8:58 pm

I’m so glad that this was a hit for your and your friends. Great substitution of the yogurt for the mayo, too! I also highly recommend the chocolate covered peanut butter pretzel tart you said you were eyeing up next…so good!! Happy reveal day :)

Seriously, I have been looking for a good red potato and dill potato salad (I’m not just being nice!) because I had one a few months ago in a restaurant and loved it! I am definitely trying this one!! Good timing! Happy reveal day =)

I’m with Erin @MSE – I don’t usually love potato salad because I’m not a huge mayo fan, but I would LOVE this version with greek yogurt. Brilliant! I bet it has such a nice flavor with those ingredients. YUM!

Erin @ Miss Scrambled Egg April 27, 2015 - 7:34 am

I usually don’t eat potato salad because I don’t care for mayonnaise, but I would definitely be all over this kind. I love that you made it with greek yogurt. That’s such a wonderful substitute.

It’s one of the best salads for summer bbq season :D
