Ina's Potato Salad

I have to tell ya, there are few things that I love more, than a classic style, loaded with goodies, old fashioned potato salad.  You know the kind I'm talking about.  The type your Grammy makes but loaded with extra goodies like bacon.  I just can't get enough of the stuff.  But these days, I find myself in a quandary.  My girlfriend introduced me to Ina's Potato Salad.  This recipe has a tangy dressing jazzed up with buttermilk and two types of mustard.  Then to take the whole thing over the top, it's generously accented with fresh dill.  In my, ever so very humble opinion, Ina really does dill right!  She seems to marry is with just the right ingredients and she shows absolutely no timidity.  These days deciding which potato salad to make is a tough choice.  But I have to admit, I love having two wonderful recipes that I know my fam will always love and devour.  This Labor Day I'm to make Ina's and I can't wait!!!!

BTW this recipe has an interesting technique for cooking the potatoes that I haven't seen in any other potato salad recipes.  It's simple, yet brilliant.  How totally Ina! 

This recipe is at my new site. Hope to see you there :) I've posted a lot of new things.

  9. We make this for every holiday weekend. Even though Ina is from the north, we still enjoy this recipe in the South!
    Even my brother loves this and he says he hates dill!

  13. It's such a colorful potato salad, too. I have the same addiction problem with macaroni salad. Plain old mayo, celery and elbow noodle salad. I can't figure out why but once I start I can't stop eating it. Maybe if I make this potato salad I can at least branch out a little bit.

  21. Oh my. I just made this for our BBQ Christmas Eve dinner. I am wondering if it will even make it to my family! I am eating it, still warm, out of the bowl. The only substitution I did was to use Penzey's brand dill weed instead of fresh - it's just fantastic! Also, using an Idaho whole potato took about 25 minutes to get fork tender. Thanks for the recipe and the amazing pictures!
