Creamy Dill Cucumber and Potato Salad - 52 Church PotLuck Side Dishes

Pin It Now!

Always on the lookout for new potato salad recipes, this one occurred to me when I was serving up a small lunch with dilled cucumbers.

Why not combine two of my favorites, dilled potatoes and dilled cucumbers.

And it worked just fine!

Creamy sweetness from non fat yogurt mixed with a tangy bit of sour cream and of course that amazing rich dill flavor.

Can be served warm but best when made ahead of time and chilled allowing all of the flavors to mix and mingle.

Enjoy indeed!

A list of something NEW worthy of being shown off at a neighborhood BYODish (Bring Your Own Dish) Party, a Family special occasion dinner, Any Big Holiday Gathering or of course that glorious day when you bring a dish to share with your Church family...

Ages ago, literally almost a half century ago I was listening to our pastor talking about a PotLuck Dinner. It happened to be scheduled around a church work day when we were expected to weed, polish and do general cleaning and maintenance around the church (you know, back in the day when there were no no-wax floors and church pews smelled of Old English furniture polish). I am of course paraphrasing, but as I recall the pastor said,

"A potluck, like a church requires work. At a potluck everyone is expected to contribute.. At a church no one should come empty handed and no one should leave unfed".
I will confess that in my youth I brought more store bought plastic spoons and forks than I ever brought covered dishes and crock pots of fresh made love and caring delights. But now that I have become a hobbyist cook, I occasionally am reminded of those days and people from my youth. I reminded and I do wish that I could drop a dish of some new creation on those old tables at my fondly remembered Liberty Baptist Church.  Tables covered with newspapers and loaded with God's bounty prepared with love and caring... Enjoy
