This classic French potato salad is incredibly easy to make and compliments any kind of meal. Prepare it when dinner is simply too much to handle and you still want to eat healthy food.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes


  • 10 medium-sized Yukon or red potatoes, cubed
  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow onions
  • 1/3 cup light olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped green onions
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill (2 teaspoons fresh dill)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


Boil the potatoes for 12 to 15 minutes, until they are just tender. Drain the cooking water and rinse the potatoes in cold water to stop the cooking process. Set the potatoes aside.

In a small skillet set over medium heat, sauté the onions in the olive oil for 6-8 minutes, until they begin to turn golden brown. Remove the skillet from the heat and stir the green onions, dill, salt, and pepper into the hot onion and oil mixture. Allow the dressing to cool to room temperature and then toss it with the cooked potatoes.

This recipe makes 6 to 8 servings.
