  • 2 pounds small potatoes
  • sea salt to taste
  • 3 tablespoons butter melted – vegan optional
  • 3 medium garlic cloves crushed or grated
  • ½ cup fresh dill finely chopped


  • If your potatoes are about an inch in diameter, leave them whole, larger cut them into 1-inch chunks, making sure all the potatoes are roughly the same size
  • Place the potatoes in a large pot and add enough water to cover by about 2 inches
  • Season with about 2 teaspoons of salt, cover tightly with a lid, and bring to a boil
  • Reduce the heat to low and simmer with the lid ajar until the potatoes can be pierced easily with a knife, 12 to 15 minutes
  • In a small bowl, stir together the oil and garlic
  • Drain the potatoes and return to the pot
  • Add the garlic oil and dill
  • Gently toss to combine
  • Taste and season with more salt, if needed

We love to have these Garlic dill potatoes on the side of this Classic Roast Chicken Recipe. It is a simple, easy to make potatoe side dish recipe that is a staple at every dinner.

Should you peel the potatoes before boiling? This is entirely a preference step and depends on the potatoes being used. A thin fleshed potato will do fine with the skin left on, whereas a rustic style, thick skinned potato will benefit from being peeled before boiling.

What can you do when you have too much fresh dill? Make this recipe for a large crowd. Use any available potatoe options and increase the ingredients volume as needed. The dill garlic sauce is where all the flavours dance.

Is there a gluten free sunflower oil? Yes, there is! A great gluten free sunflower oil for cooking is Maison Orphee Organic Sunflower Oil. Every week, Maison Orphee presses Canadian-grown sunflower seeds using a small screw press. Fresh and mild, this oil works well as a finishing touch or in baking.

Originally posted Ukrainian Dill Potatoes recipe used 1/4 cup of sunflower oil instead of butter. Adjustments were made to use butter for ingredients availability.

    Yum, this sounds like my kind of dish! As the weather is warming up my craving for dill is amping up. I think I’ll give this a shot this weekend because I already have all of the ingredients and it looks so easy!!

    I used Idaho baking potatoes, cut in small pieces and put directly into crock pot. Tossed potatoes with remaining ingredients and added a little olive oil for moisture. Cooked until tender and the potatoes didn’t fall apart. Will definitely make again.

    I’ve made plenty of potatoes but always used rosemary instead. And since we love dill this recipe tempted me to try the dill and onion flavor. WOW!! Hubs went nuts over the taste. I followed your tips for getting the outer skin crispier. It worked like a charm. This recipe will be included at our picnics and barbecues.

    I love the flavor of dill, especially with potatoes! I admit I doubled the amount of dill used in the recipe, I love it so much! This is a really satisfying dish, I served it with eggs for brunch but I think it would be just as delicious with fish for dinner.
