Red Potato Salad with Fresh Dill

We have been getting these beautiful, Spring red potatoes from our CSA. The thing about these potatoes is they have a  super creamy, soft, smooth, velvety mouth feel when cooked. They are a total pleasure to eat, and talk about addictive. I actually asked my husband to take the potato salad with him last Thursday night when he was going to pick up our full diet CSA.  You see, I did not trust myself with the potato salad and me alone in the same house. Needless to say, he did not take it with him, he just told me to have some self control. Ha! Jokes on him, easier said than done.

Spring Red Potatoes

I am sure you all are wondering whether or not I ate the entire potato salad that night. I did not. I did eat a few bites though, and then put it up high on a shelf, so I would have to work to eat more of it. I was feeling pretty lazy that night, so there you have it. I am not sure if these pictures convey the color of these potatoes, but they are a beautiful pink color. Not quite a magenta, but close.
