Winter Potato Salad


  • 8 cups water
  • 2 pounds potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters or eighths, depending on their size (waxy potatoes like Yukon gold or red potatoes work best)
  • ½ cup chopped fresh dill
  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 to 5 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper (optional)
  • 2 cups arugula, chopped
  • 2 cups spinach, chopped
  • 1 large sweet onion (like Vidalia), thinly sliced
  • 1 small head green leaf or romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 1 small radish, sliced (optional, for garnish)


  1. Bring 8 cups of water in saucepan to boil.
  2. Add potatoes and cook uncovered until tender, about 12 minutes.
  3. Test by piercing potatoes with a fork—if they pierce easily, they are ready. Drain potatoes and let cool.
  4. In a small bowl, combine dill, olive oil, and vinegar; season with salt and pepper to taste. Whisk until well combined.
  5. In a large serving bowl, combine potatoes with dressing and toss well.
  6. Just before serving, add remaining ingredients through lettuce and toss to combine. Garnish with radish, if using.
