This potato salad uses roasted potatoes and onions, giving it an interesting flavor. This potato salad will be a hit at any cookout or potluck, and it's delicious with grilled meat, chicken, or burgers. I sometimes add a little diced cooked bacon to this potato salad for extra flavor.

What You'll Need

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil plus more for the pan
  • 1 1/2 pounds red-skinned potatoes, scrubbed and cut in 1/2- to 3/4-inch pieces
  • 1 small red onion, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill weed or 1 tablespoon fresh chopped dill
  • 1 tablespoon fresh snipped chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

How to Make It

  1. Heat the oven to 425°.
  2. Line a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with foil; oil the pan with a little olive oil.
  3. In a large bowl or in a food storage bag, toss potatoes and onion with the 2 tablespoons of olive oil, garlic, dill weed, chives, salt, and pepper. Transfer the potato mixture to the baking pan and bake for 45 to 55 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Stir occasionally so the potatoes will brown evenly.
  1. Let the potatoes cool completely. Combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, and lemon juice in a small bowl. Toss the mayonnaise mixture with the potato mixture, adding more mayonnaise if needed.
