Dill Pickle Potato Salad

A classic side dish made with chopped hamburger dill pickles instead of sweet salad cubes or sweet relish.   The perky flavor is great with oven barbecue, fried chicken, fried fish, meatloaf, and more.

These are complimentary jars of delicious pickles from my favorite brand, Mt. Olive. I arranged them in front of the nice box in which they arrived. Available for purchase in most grocery stores.

You’re invited to check out my recipes for Iced Dill Pickle Juice and Potato Salad with sweet relish or sweet salad cubes.

Instructions
  1. Thoroughly wash potatoes. Do not peel. Set aside. Add 2 cups of water to a large sauce pan. Stir in salt. Add washed potatoes. Add more water to cover.
  2. Simmer over medium-high heat until fork tender and potatoes break easily. If they are hard/crunchy, boil 5-10 minutes longer. Rinse fork tender potatoes in cold water. Cool 15-20 minutes. Peel. Cut into bite sized pieces.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl, combine potatoes, chopped eggs, onion, chopped dill pickles and chopped pimentos (if using). Add mayonnaise (or Miracle Whip) one tablespoon at a time until satisfied with creamy texture. Add mustard a little at a time until satisfied. Season with salt. Stir together.
  4. Sprinkled dried dill weed over top of prepared potato salad. Adds flavor and makes a nice presentation. This step is optional.
  5. Serve immediately. Or, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Although delicious immediately after preparation, it tastes better the next day.
  6. If desired, garnish each serving with 2-3 whole hamburger dill chips.
Recipe Notes

VARIATION:  Instead of dill weed, lightly sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon of paprika over prepared potato salad OR sprinkle over each individual serving.   It adds a pretty splash of red color!
