Swedish potato salad

Perfect with plain grilled salmon or smoked salmon, this Swedish potato salad is simple to make and a great ‘make ahead’ dish if you’ve got guests. Use new potatoes or a firm, waxy variety like Charlotte, a generous handful of fresh dill with a tangy sour cream dressing and you won’t be disappointed. This quantity serves four but it’s easy to scale up if you’re entertaining.

Swedish potato salad
  • 500g Charlotte or new potatoes, washed with loose skin scrubbed off
  • 15g fresh dill, finely chopped
  • 150ml pot of soured cream
  • 12 cornichons, chopped into small pieces
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper

To make...

  • Cook the potatoes in boiling, lightly salted water for approx 10 minutes or until cooked through – test with the point of a sharp knife. Drain and turn out on a chopping board for them to cool thoroughly. Chop into bite sized chunks and place them in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the very finely chopped red onion, cornichons and dill. Pour over the soured cream, season with black or white pepper and mix thoroughly. Transfer to a serving dish and refrigerate until needed.
