Dill Pickle Potato Salad

Dill Pickle Potato Salad is a lightened up potato salad made for dill pickle lovers. Greek yogurt based and loaded with potatoes, dill pickle brine, chopped dill pickles, dill relish and fresh dill. 

I finally had my first crazy, super viral video on Facebook a couple of weeks ago when I shared my Dill Pickle Chicken Wings. And it only further cemented my belief that dill pickles are having a moment right now.

They are everywhere. And honestly, people are LOVING them. So I thought, why not add dill pickle to MORE things?

The BEST Potato Salad

Dill pickle is a common ingredient in most potato salad recipes but this Dill Pickle Potato Salad has a few other dilly additions that make it even better!

What ingredients do you need to make Dill Pickle Potato Salad?

Unlike most potato salads that are mayo based, this Dill Pickle Potato Salad is greek yogurt based. There is still mayonnaise, but half the amount of the yogurt. This combo makes it tangy and creamy without being too heavy.

Dressing for potato salad

For the dill portion of the recipe it is loaded. There are chopped dill pickles, dill pickle relish, dried dill and for just a splash more dill, I add some of the dill pickle brine.

Tips for making the best Potato Salad:

Potato salad is a BBQ classic for a reason. Over the years I have come up with a few tips that I think will help you make the perfect potato salad.

Tip #1: Cook the potatoes until they are fork tender and then use a potato masher to mash them slightly. You don’t want to make mashed potatoes but the contrasting texture between mashed and whole pieces of potatoes is fabulous.

Tip #2: Add the vinegar (or in this case pickle brine) to the potatoes when they are HOT. This allows them to absorb more of the flavor.

Tip #3: Make it a day ahead of time. That way there is less to do right before dinner/bbq/picnic. I also love doing it the day before because it gives the flavors a chance to develop.

How do you make Dill Pickle Potato Salad?

Step #1: To make dill pickle potato salad, boil potatoes in a pot of water until they are fork tender and drain them. Once they are drained, add the dill pickle brine, relish and dill pickles and mash together slightly while the potatoes are still warm.

Step #2: In a separate bowl whisk together the greek yogurt, mayonnaise, dill, garlic, salt and pepper. Then pour over the potatoes.

Step #3: Mix well and let chill for at least 1 hour to give the flavors a chance to develop. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper if desired.
