📝 Ingredients & Substitutions

Ingredients for Dill Potato Salad labeled.
  • Potatoes – New season baby potatoes (also known as chat potatoes) are perfect for this salad. You don’t need to peel them and they cook quickly and are loaded with flavour and nutrients. I use a mix of white and red potatoes and the salad looks even prettier with this mix. If using larger potatoes, scrub and wash the skin and cut each potato into quarters before proceeding with the recipe.

What Potatoes are best for salads?

Waxy potatoes are good for salads as they don’t fall apart. These varieties have a waxy skin and lower starch content. This means they don’t fall apart when boiling or mashing and hold their shape really well. They also roast and slice very well. Try these varieties – Kipfler, Dutch Cream, Yukon Gold, Dutch Cream and Desiree.

  • French Shallot – These look like small, pink onions but have a milder flavour. They are classified as onions and used in French and Asian cooking. I use them chopped up in a salad when I want to add an allium “hit” but still keep it mild and sweet. If you can’t find them, use a white salad onion or the white part of a spring onion (also known as shallots or scallion).
  • Dill, Spring Onion & Capers – These add the salty, citrusy, grassy and spicy notes to the salad making the potatoes really shine.
  • Salad Dressing – Instead of a heavy, creamy mayonnaise-based dressing traditionally seen in a Dill Potato Salad, I make a super light, super punchy but basic salad dressing with loads of lemon, garlic and mustard.

Potatoes – I take advantage of child potatoes (additionally referred to as chat potatoes) for this recipe. A mixture of white and crimson potatoes appears actually fairly. Child potatoes cook dinner rapidly however in case you are utilizing bigger potatoes, simply minimize every into quarters.

These have a decrease starch content material and do not collapse when boiling, mashing or slicing. They maintain their form rather well and are excellent for salads.
French Shallots – These seem like small, pink onions and have a milder style than onions do. If you cannot discover these, use the white a part of a spring onion or a white salad onion. Small crimson pickling onions are good too.
Capers – Chop capers earlier than including. Olives are a great substitute.
Wholegrain mustard – This provides a beautiful texture. If you have no, Dijon mustard is ok too.
