When summer hits, I crave fresh veggies, and big salads. This potato salad is one I whipped up after my first visit to the farmers market this year.I had purchased a bunch of fresh asparagus, a bag of mini red potatoes, and had a bag of dried dill ready to be used. It turned out so great that I needed to share it with you all so lets get summer-salad making!
I loved this salad’s variety of texture and flavor. The potatoes are mild and soft, the asparagus is crisp and earthy, the onion is sweet and strong, and the dressing is tangy and vibrant.
Another thing I loved about this salad is that it tasted great days after whipping it up—in fact, I think it tasted better once the veggies marinated in the dressing. If you’re short on time this summer but need a great salad for a picnic or party—make this ahead of time and still impress all your friends!
I am so excited for you all to try my summer dill potato salad! As always, if you try this recipe, be sure to take a picture and tag me in it on Instagram @thelocalsprout. I can’t wait to hear what you think!
