Tangy Goat Cheese and Dill Potato Salad


  • 2 1/2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, diced

  • Salt

  • 1/4 cup white wine or 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar

  • 1/2 cup goat cheese crumbles

  • 1 cup yogurt, creme fraiche or sour cream

  • 1 lemon, juiced

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)

  • 1 small clove garlic, finely grated or minced

  • 1/4 cup dill, finely chopped

  • 4 scallions, finely chopped, whites and greens

  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 dill pickles, chopped

  • 4 radishes, thinly sliced


Cover the potatoes with water and bring to a boil. Salt the water and cook until tender, about 10 minutes.

When the potatoes are cooked, return them to the hot pot and douse with a splash of wine or a couple tablespoons of white wine vinegar.

In a bowl, whisk together the goat cheese, yogurt, creme fraiche or sour cream, lemon juice, EVOO and garlic. Toss the potatoes, dill and scallions in the dressing and season with salt and pepper. Garnish the salad with the chopped pickles and thinly sliced radishes and serve.
