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

Instructions:

  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. 🍽️
