Creamy Dill and Cucumber Potato Salad

This salad was a side dish to my Cedar Plank Salmon recipe.  It goes perfectly with it because dill and salmon are really good friends, and the sweet taste of the salmon glaze is nicely complimented by the tart taste of the potato salad which has lemon juice and sour cream to give it some zing.

This potato salad would also go well with white meat like chicken or pork, as well as fish.  Check out the full recipe after the link.

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Serves: 4


  • 2lb of baby potatoes or same amount of yellow potatoes, cubed into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 English cucumber
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream
  • 1/2 cup of mayonnaise or miracle whip
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 large shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 bushel of dill weed, rough chopped
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 bundle of chives for garnish


  1. Place potatoes in salted water and bring to a boil.  Boil until potatoes are fork tender
  2. Peal the cucumber and grate it into a large salad bowl using a grater.  You’ll be left with a cucumber ‘pulp’ which will contain mostly water.  Strain out and discard the water.  You’ll be left with the cucumber for the salad
  3. Add the sour cream, mayonnaise, garlic, shallot, dill, and lemon juice to the salad bowl, and mix well.  Taste and adjust seasoning
  4. Once the potatoes are finished boiling, drain out the water, and put the hot potatoes into the salad bowl with the cucumber dill dressing.  Mix well, and garnish with chives

This side dish goes really well with a salmon dish like my Cedar Plank Salmon, or a barbecue pork rib main, like my Pork Side Ribs with Jamaican Jerk Sauce.
