Scandinavians love their potatoes, as well as cucumbers and dill, so why not combine them in this easy, creamy potato salad? Serve the salad chilled with hot, grilled sausages, or grilled fish.
Nordic Dilled Potato Salad with Sour Cream and Cucumbers
4 cups sliced (1/4-inch thick) pared waxy potatoes
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh dill
1-1/2 cups pared, seeded, and sliced cucumber
1/3 cup thinly sliced red onion (optional)
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
