How to Make Swedish Dill Potatoe Salad Recipe 🍴 Dillstuvad Potatis

Did you know that the first potatoes in Sweden was around 1655? Potatoes were documented at   Olof Rudbeck’s botanical garden in Uppsala, Sweden.

Recently, I went to a Midsummer celebration.  We danced around the Maypole (majstång  or  midsommarstång) and had traditional dishes such as 4 kinds of herring!! Which made me so happy to have 4 kinds of herring.  I just love herring!   🎈 🎉

It made me think to make the Swedish Dill Potatoe salad side dish.  It is perfect timing as I have so much dill, parsley and chives in my garden right now.  😀  This dish  goes with any summer dish such as grilled chicken, fish and even hotdogs.

Below is my recipe to mkae the Swedish Dill Potatoe Salad

🌼 Ingredients

  • 1 pound freshly boiled potatoes, cut into inch wide pieces
  • 1/2 tablespoon freshly ground white pepper
  • 3 heaping tablespoons chopped dill, parsley and/or chives

Béchamel sauce:

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 1/3 cups whole milk or half milk/half cream
  • salt & pepper to taste


  1. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a saucepan over medium heat
  2. Add the flour & combine.
  3. Add cream or milk and whisk together.
  4. Bring to boil and let it boil for 2-3 minutes until the sauce thickens.
  5. Cut potatoes into inch wide pieces.
  6. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Add the pre-cooked potatoes and heat through.
  8. Add half of the herbs.
Serve with either grilled chicken, steak or fish.  In Denmark, we typically have potatoe salad with hotdogs which is what I had with this recipe recently. 🍽️

I love to bake with apples and was excited to get another round of apples from my apple tree. Unfortunately, I am not sure if we will get anything this year.  I did not see any apple flowers on our tree this spring.  So, I will have to buy apples for my baking this year. 

In the Scandinavina countries we like to eat a lot of rye bread.  So I like try to different rye bread recipes and this recipe as shredded apples.   The apple in the recipe makes the rye bread slightly softer and sweeter against the rustic rye flavor.


🌻Ingredients 🌻

  • 2 cups of whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup of rye flour
  • 5 ounces of water
  • 1/2 cup of shredded apples
  • 1 package of yeast
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of oil
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar

Bake in the oven for 30 minutes at 425F.  See our instructions on our video on how to make this easy bread.

Serve with butter. You might want to add honey or a slice of cheese as well.  As well a glass of milk, a cup of tea or coffee goes great with the rye bread for either breakfast, lunch or as a snack.
