Sweet, caramelized onions are the perfect addition to this simple and easy potato salad.


  • 2 medium yellow onions, sliced
  • 3 Tbs olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 1/2 lbs small red potatoes
  • Boiling, salted water
  • 1 Tbs fresh, chopped dill leaves (or 1 tsp dried dill weed)
  • 1 Tbs Dijon mustard
  • 2 Tbs lemon juice
  • 2 Tbs sugar


  • Sauté onions in olive oil in large skillet over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes until golden. Season with salt and pepper to taste, cover and chill.
  • Boil potatoes 20 to 35 minutes or until fork tender but not mushy. Drain and chill in covered container.
  • Combine mayonnaise, dill leaves, mustard, lemon juice, and sugar. Slice chilled potatoes and brush a thin glaze of the dilled mayonnaise over tops.
  • To arrange salad, spoon onions onto plate, spreading into a 10- to 12-inch round. Make overlapping circles of glazed sliced potatoes over onions.
  • Spoon some of the dilled mayonnaise into center, and place remainder in a small bowl. If desired, garnish with fresh herbs or a few arugula leaves.
