Family Favorite Potato Salad

Family Favorite Potato Salad

This delicious potato salad makes a great side dish to your favorite summer cookout meals. I came up with this recipe after tasting my mother-in-law’s potato salad. Her recipe was so delicious as is, I just tweaked the recipe ever so slightly by adding dill which really helps elevate the overall flavor and I used red onion in place of traditional yellow. This recipe has been a family favorite of ours for years and I hope it will be for you too, enjoy!

Prep: 20 min


  • 8 medium/large russet potatoes, peeled
  • 1 med. red onion, finely diced
  • 2 tbsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp. dried dill
  • 2 cups mayonnaise + more

Cook: 8 min

Makes: 8-10 servings


  1. Cube the potatoes and place them in a large pot.
  2. Rinse the potatoes with cold water until the water is clear.
  3. Fill the pot with cold water making sure to cover the potatoes.
  4. On high heat, bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium and continue to cook until you can easily insert a fork into the potatoes (approx. 8 min.)
  5. Using a colander, drain the water from the potatoes.
  6. Place the potatoes in a large bowl and add the onion, garlic powder, dill and mayonnaise.
  7. Mix all the ingredients together. The potato salad should be a creamy consistency.
  8. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours. The more time you refrigerate, the more time the flavors have to blend together which helps heighten the overall flavor (if possible I recommend making the day before).
  9. After chilling the potato salad, uncover and mix well. Add a little more mayonnaise to bring it back to a creamy consistency.
