  • 2 lb potatoes about 4-5 medium sized. chopped into quarters
  • 3/4 cup mayo
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup sweet relish
  • 1/2 tbsp dijon
  • 1/2 tbsp yellow mustard
  • 1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 4 eggs hard boiled
  • 2 celery stalks finely chopped
  • 1/2 small onion finely chopped
  • 1/2 tbsp chopped dill and extra for garnishing
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Boil the potatoes in a pot of salted water and cook until they are fork-tender, which should take about 15-20 minutes.
  • While the potatoes are cooking, dice the hard-boiled eggs into small pieces and set aside.
  • In a smaller bowl, whisk together the mayo, sour cream, dijon mustard, and apple cider vinegar. Set aside
  • Once the potatoes are cooked, drain them and let them cool for a few minutes. Chop into quarter size
  • In a large bowl add the potatoes, onions, celery, dill, and paprika. Add 3/4 of the dressing and mix gently until everything is well-coated ensuring potatoes don't get smashed. (adjust the amount of dressing to your liking by adding more or less). 
  • Season the salad with salt and pepper to taste
  • Cover the potato salad with a plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving. This will allow the salad to chill while flavours meld together.
  • Garnish with the rest of the dill. Serve and Enjoy!
