The key to the deeply-seasoned potatoes in this tangy and creamy salad is to cook them in water seasoned with salt and vinegar. A dressing flavored with olive oil, sour cream, and dill binds it together.

Bringing together a set of usual barbecue flavors—tangy, smoky, and sweet—this is one salad worthy of a seat next to a stack of fatty brisket.
Fingerling potatoes in a sweet-tart vinaigrette made extra-creamy with the addition of potato cooking liquid and mashed yukon golds. Creamy, delicious, and 100% vegan.
While potato salad is often thought of as a summertime picnic side dish, fall is the perfect time to dip into a comforting bowl of potatoes. The Fingerlings Vinaigrette in Deb Perelman's The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook, for example, would make an ideal side dish for any fall dinner.

Heidi Swanson, author of Super Natural Every Day, has brilliantly solved the salad-y potato salad equation with this Mostly Not Potato Salad.
The soft-boiled eggs combined with just a touch of mayonnaise and Dijon mustard serve as the creamy base of this potato salad; the cornichons adds tartness; the celery hearts, red onion, and lemon juice bring a variety of tart, bright flavors; and the smoked paprika contributes a rich, smokey component. And everything is better with bacon.
