This recipe starts out with roasted potatoes – I did a mix of Yukon Golds and red skinned potatoes. You could do either or, it’s up to you.
If you like the skins on, you can leave them on. Just make sure to scrub your potatoes well if you are leaving skins on.
Once the potatoes are perfectly roasted, you’ll add onions, peppers, lots of chopped dill pickles, and a flavorful vinaigrette. Toss it all together, and you’ll have a potato salad that stands out! This easy recipe is free of the top 9 allergens, so hopefully all can enjoy it this summer.
Can I use a different kind of pickle in this recipe?
If you use sweet pickles, this salad will be sweet. It’s a personal preference – use the kind of pickles that you enjoy.
I love the addition of dried dill as well as the dill pickles – it really makes this dish very dilly.
Can I make this salad ahead of time?
Yes, you can make it the night before if you like. You could also mix up the salad ingredients and mix the dressing separately in a jar, and then mix them all together right before serving.
Can I make this without mustard?
Yes, feel free to leave the mustard out of the dressing. It will still be tasty!
