Golden Lemon Scented Potato Salad Featuring Dijon & Dill


earthfamily copy.jpgThis creamy slightly piquant salad is paired with the rich, sweet, soft texture and pleasant aroma of dill and spicy Dijon; kissed with white wine and seasonings. It makes the perfect traveling or stay at home picnic fare. Alongside fried or barbecued chicken, or anything grilled, you have a complete culinary celebration. Delectable!

PS...I accidentally left out the word “salad” while visiting Photoshop to add text to the photo–forgive me? 😉 May I add that adding text to clicks of food is no easy feat!? Now you see it, now you don’t! 🙂

Directions:

  • Place potatoes and 2 tablespoons of salt in a large pot of water. Bring water to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 15 – 20 minutes, until potatoes are almost tender when pierced with a fork.
  • Drain potatoes in a colander, then place colander with the potatoes over the empty pot and cover with a clean, dry kitchen towel.
  • Allow the potatoes to steam for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, buttermilk, Dijon mustard, whole grain mustard, dill, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of pepper and lemon juice. Set aside.
  • When potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut them in quarters or in half, depending on their size.
  • Place cut potatoes in a large bowl. While they are still warm, pour enough dressing over them to moisten.
  • Add the celery and red onion, 2 teaspoons of salt and 1 teaspoon of pepper, or to taste. Toss well.
  • Gently fold in hard boiled eggs, cover, and refrigerate for a few hours to allow the flavors to blend.
  • Garnish with additional dill and lemon slices before serving.
  • Serve cold or at room temperature.

    I’ve tasted ‘Amish potato salad’ and it sounds like this recipe (minus the dill) and it is delicious!!

    1. Hi GP! Yes! It’s very similar to the Amish recipe. I’m a huge fan of anything Amish–their cooking is so hearty and pure 🙂

        I still remember eating country-style at the Shartlesville Hotel in PA and my mom woofing down an entire Shoo-fly Pie because it tasted so good, she couldn’t stop!
        Wish i could go back, but I don’t think it exists anymore; we were there to see ‘Roadside America”s huge model trains cities.
