Potato and Zucchini Salad with Dill

Last week while in Marksbury Farm Market, I saw some local zucchini begging me to buy it.  Strange since I'm not zucchini's biggest fan.  It must have known that I needed to branch out and continue trying it, and somehow it ended up in my shopping bag.  When I got home, however, I wasn't really sure what to do with it.  We had decided to grill that night, and I just love potato salad when grilling, so I thought I'd throw together what I had on hand into a potato and zucchini salad.  It was a hit...even with my potato-salad-averse husband.  This salad is really very simple and could be extremely versatile.  You could try throwing in some other veggies, but if you get a talking zucchini like I did, it might get a little envious.  ;-)


As a side note, I wanted to let you know about a fun culinary event happening in Louisville, Kentucky tomorrow (May 2nd).  Chefs Cat Cora and Anthony Lamas (of Seviche in Louisville) will be doing a cooking demonstration at Macy's Oxmoor.  RSVPs are requested, so jump on over to the website to find out more info!

Potato and Zucchini Salad with Dill
Serves 6

4-5 medium gold or red potatoes, chopped
1 small zucchini, trimmed, halved lengthwise and sliced thinly
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions, both white and green parts
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
3-4 teaspoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon fresh dill, minced
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Boil the potatoes in salted water until fork tender.  Drain and cool on a cookie sheet.

Place cooled potatoes, zucchini, and onions in a bowl.  Mix sour cream, mayonnaise, 3 teaspoons lemon juice, dill, salt and pepper in a small bowl.  Taste and add more lemon juice and/or salt to taste.  Mix the dressing in with the vegetables gently.  Refrigerate for at least two hours before serving.

Serve cold.

I hated zucchini until I started growing it (and now, because of all the wonderful farmers' markets, I no longer have to!), so I totally understand your ambivalence. Nice idea here with the potatoes.

I love zucchini! I didn't start liking it until a few years ago, but now I love it! This looks great!

Did you cook the zucchini or was it raw? I guess it was raw, but just want to clarify! Sounds yummy topped off with dill. :)

@Genomicmouse, the zucchini was raw, but I'd imagine it would be tasty grilled as well! :-)
