There are three things I really love about this potato salad.
Red Potatoes I love the texture of the red potatoes. Some will tell you that a good potato salad can only be made with russet potatoes. I disagree.
Fresh Dill Oh, there's just something special about the taste of fresh dill in potato salad.
Sugar The addition of a little bit of sugar nicely offsets the vinegar. This potato salad in not sweet, but the hint sugar adds balance.
Let's make some...

|My Red Potato Salad Ingredients|
- 2 1/2 pounds red potatoes, unpeeled
- 4 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- 2 stalks celery, chopped
- 1/2 medium red onion, chopped
- 2-3 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
- 2 scallions, chopped
- 1/2 cup Miracle Whip
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons kosher salt
- fresh ground pepper
Wash the potatoes and cut them into uniform chunks. Place the potatoes in a large pot. Add 2 tablespoons of kosher salt, 2 tablespoons of sugar and 2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar. Adding the sugar, salt and vinegar to the cooking water is a key step in infusing the potatoes with really great flavor. Fill the pot with cold water to cover the potatoes.

While the potatoes are still warm, add the chopped onion, celery, scallions, and dill. Toss to distribute. Pour the mayonnaise mixture over the potatoes and stir to combine. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed. Chill until ready to serve, at least 4 hours.
