Unlike the traditional potato salad with yellow mustard, pickle, and hard-boiled egg, this gluten free Potato Salad with Fresh Dill includes dijon and whole-grain mustards, buttermilk, and yes, one of my favorite herbs, dill!
It is a bit of a different combination of flavors but every time I make this recipe from my favorite chef Ina Garten, I receive raving reviews! It is even a hit with those folks who say they don't like potato salad.
The addition of dill gives this potato salad a fresh herby flavor. After making the dressing, only add as much as you would like.
Combining the dressing with the warm potatoes helps the potato to absorb the dressing and flavors. Sometimes I add all of it and sometimes I want it with less dressing. Let's be honest, you can't miss when serving a recipe from Ina Garten!
Go ahead and make this perfect side dish ahead of time, even the day before. This gives time for the flavors of the potato salad with fresh dill to combine and fully develop together.
This salad is the perfect addition to any weeknight meal, picnic, party, holiday, or any entertaining gathering! Enjoy!

- 3 pounds small potatoes, small red or small yukon gold
- 2 Tablespoons Kosher salt, for the boiling water
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- ¼ cup buttermilk
- 2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 2 Tablespoons whole-grain mustard
- ½ cup chopped fresh dill
- ½ - 1 teaspoon kosher salt, (for the dressing) Add more if you desire after tasting the mixed dressing.
- ½ - 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- ½ cup chopped celery
- ½ cup chopped red onion
- To cook the potatoes place the unpeeled potatoes in a large pot of water, add 2 Tablespoons of salt and bring to a boil.
- Once the water is boiling, turn the heat down. Simmer the potatoes for about 15 to 20 minutes. Check to make sure the potatoes are done before draining in a colander.
- While the potatoes are cooking, make the dressing by whisking together the mayonnaise, buttermilk, mustards and dill.
- Cut the potatoes in quarters or in half.
- Place the cut potatoes in a large bowl.
- While the potatoes are still warm, pour enough dressing over them to moisten.
- Add the celery, red onion and more salt and pepper (if desired) to taste.
- Gently toss to make sure all ingredients are combined well. Cover and refrigerate. If you have the time, let the salad sit in the frig before serving as the flavors will all blend together.
- Serve cold or at room temperature and Enjoy!
Hi Carol! That recipe sounds Gr8 and one we might like to try! We are so glad you are enjoying your copper measuring cups. Take care Gr8 Friend!
The herby potato salad is first cousin to an “Oh She Glows - Dinner” recipe I made with warm roasted baby potatoes, roasted asparagus and French green lentils. The dressing is very similar...and I used my #gr8friends copper measuring cups!
Hi Carol! We hope you like it! Let us know if what you think. Thanks for being such a Gr8 Friend and have a wonderful Memorial Day!
Hi Kyle, I just need some celery and I’m going to make this over Memorial Day weekend. It sounds delicious. I’m a fan of potato salad with “not too much going on” flavor-wise and this fits the bill! Thank you!
