Good Eating Monday: Creamy Dill Pickle Potato Salad!

Another "Summer of Potato Salad" recipe from Pinterest that I tried out this week:
Creamy Dill Pickle Potato Salad!
It's a winner! My Sunday night crowd really liked it!
It's a creamy, mildly dill pickle-flavored Mayo dressing over baby potatoes!
They're only request was they'd like more boiled eggs in it! The recipe only calls for two boiled eggs cut into wedges as more of a garnish, so adding one or two more boiled eggs coarsely chopped might be a good addition!
The baby potatoes I used were a "Medley" of colors: red, purple & gold, so the darker colored baby potatoes made the photo look a bit darker.
(My sister has made this Potato Salad twice in July already and she and my Mother love it!)

Creamy Dill Pickle Potato Salad
1/2 cup Mayo
1 Tablespoon buttermilk (or just plain milk works fine)
1 Tablespoons dill pickle juice
Salt & Pepper to Taste

24 - 28 ounces baby potatoes, do not peel
1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced
2-3 whole dill pickles, chopped 
3 Tablespoon fresh minced Dill or 1 Tablespoon dried Dill
2 Hard boiled eggs, cut into wedges

Garnish Options:
Chopped pickles, fresh dill, a Tablespoon of sliced green onions or a shake of Paprika over top.

1)  Whisk the dressing ingredients together, add salt & pepper to taste. Set aside.

2)  Place potatoes in pot and cover with cold water. Add salt.
Bring to boil. Lower heat & boil gently until just tender. Drain and rinse in cold water. Allow to cool enough to handle.

3)  Halve or quarter the baby potatoes, depending on their size, while slightly warm and put in a large bowl. Add dressing and toss.
The potatoes will absorb the dressing better if slightly warm.

4)  Add green onions, dill pickles, Dill herb and toss again to combine. Top with egg wedges.
(Or if you want more egg, boil a couple extra and coarsely chop some additional egg into the salad!)
Refrigerate several hours to allow flavors to develop.

5)  Garnish as desired with chopped pickles or extra fresh dill or a sprinkle of Paprika or extra green onions.
The Medley bag of baby potatoes I bought was 28 oz and the dressing recipe was plenty even for that!
I used Hellman's Olive Oil Mayo.
I shook a little Paprika over the top of my salad as a garnish.
It's okay to use the kind of pickles you like.
