💭 FAQ and Top Tips
Can I replace the mayo with more yogurt instead?
Yes, you most certainly can!
Can I replace yogurt with more mayo?
Yes. I love the combo of the two, but using just one or the other works perfectly, too!
Can I use dried dill instead of fresh?
You can, but it will taste a bit different than fresh. In a pinch, it works though! Using fresh dill adds a lighter fresher flavor, whereas dried adds the dill flavor but without the additional freshness. When using dried, use 2 tablespoons instead of 6.
Can I omit the celery seed?
You can, though this is kind of my secret ingredient! Celery seed imparts a unique flavor that is hard to duplicate. However, if you omit it, you will still have one tasty, creamy potato salad. Alternatively, you can replace the celery seed with a little fresh chopped celery, too.
How long does this keep in the fridge?
You can keep this dill potato salad stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week. Best served chilled!
