Scandinavian New Potato Salad – Färskpotatissalad

Sometimes you need that potato salad thing going, but don’t want to go through the effort of celery, bacon and all the other stuff. So here is a quick Scandinavian potato salad. It has a freshness about it, and works (as you would expect) really well with fish. It is also quick and cheap.


  • 12 – 15 new potatoes
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup of mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup of fresh dill finely chopped.


  1. Wash the new potatoes and then boil them until tender. Rinse, let then cool. You could then scrape them of their skins, but this is a personal preference. Cut them into quarters.
  2. Whisk the sour cream, mayonnaise and chopped fresh dill together and found the potatoes into the mix.
  3. Chill in the refrigerator for at least one hour before serving.

About Cooking At Zero Degrees

This is a blog (it also works on an ipad and now has a Facebook page) about what we eat at home. Starters, mains, sauces, side dishes, cocktails and links to local shops. It’s all here. Food is fun, it should be fun to make and fun to eat. For some people making a meal is a chore. If it is then don’t do it; but please, it’s better to eat something, anything, that you make at home from scratch, because prepared, packaged supermarket dinners and food have about as much flavour as the plastic or cardboard package they come in. Food cultivation and husbandry is not just a moral argument. Eggs that don’t come from battery hens do taste better, cattle properly reared have more flavour - and just think about it: at its most simple, if they’re not being pumped full of chemicals then you’re not being pumped full of chemicals. How good is that? If you can buy local, use your neighbourhood shops, you will miss them when they are gone. Most of all, have fun making a meal of it! Oh, and why at zero degrees? Because that’s where we live – in Greenwich, London.
