For me, nothing screams Memorial Day weekend and the start of summer break like an ice cold, creamy potato salad.
The perfect potato salad in my eyes has crunch, tang, mustard (of course) and DILL! Quite honestly the more dill the better! That’s why when I came across Young Living’s Dill Essential Oil I was so excited! Often times fresh dill just doesn’t satisfy the flavor expectations I have in potato salad. Adding Dill Essential Oil makes all the difference – hands down Best Dill Potato Salad ever!
- Russet Potatoes
- Dill Pickles
- Hellman’s Mayo
- Sour Cream
- Fresh Dill
- Dill Essential Oil
- Salt & Pepper
- Onion Powder
- Apple Cider Vinegar
- Hard Boiled Eggs (optional)
Begin by peeling all six potatoes. Once peeled and washed cut each potato into similarly sized cubes. Add potatoes to a large stockpot. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Boil the potatoes for 7-10 minutes or until cooked, not mushy!
While potatoes are boiling prepare an ice water bath. When the potatoes are done remove them from the heat and drain them from the water. Add hot potatoes to the ice bath to stop the cooking process. Allow potatoes to cool completely.
In a small bowl mix together mayo, mustard, sour cream, sugar, salt, pepper, onion powder and dill essential oil. Mix until creamy and set to the side.
Dill Vitality™ essential oil provides a fresh, pungent flavor to replace fresh or dried dill in dressings and dips. Its flavor also pairs beautifully with Carrot Seed Vitality and Lemon Vitality as a flavorful ingredient for soups and stews. With fresh dill being a key flavor in many traditional Russian, European, Mediterranean, Asian, and Scandinavian dishes, Dill Vitality can be a great way to lend a rich flavor to a wide variety of cuisines!
Prepare celery and pickles by chopping into small cubes. Pieces should be big enough to add crunch but smaller than the potato cubes.
In a large bowl add all cubed ingredients. Mix together with dressing until each cube is coated evenly.
Finally, splash with Apple Cider Vinegar, this add of acidic flavor creates the perfect tang to the creamy potato salad. Mix salad up one more time and place in the fridge to chill. I prefer to chill my potato salad overnight for optimal results. Could be served after a one hour chill period if required.
Optional – If you wanted you could add hard-boil four eggs, chop them up and add them to the salad.

Begin by peeling all six potatoes.
Once peeled and washed cut potatoes into similar sized cubes. Place cubes in a large stockpot and cover with water.
Boil potatoes for 7-10, minutes.
While potatoes are boiling prep an ice water bath in a separate bowl.
When potatoes are cooked, but not mushy, remove from heat and strain from water. Add hot potatoes to ice water to stop cooking. Leave them to cool.
Next, prepare your dressing. In a small bowl mix together the Hellmans Mayo, Sour Cream, Mustard, Sugar, Salt, Pepper and Dill Essential Oil.
Prep the pickles and celery by chopping into small cubes. Then mince fresh dill and put off to the side.
Strain the potatoes from the ice cubes and remove from water.
Next mix dressing into the bowl of cooked potatoes.

Chilling is crucial to any potato salad. Chill for at least an hour, overnight is even better.
