Instructions

To make the potatoes:

  • Quarter or halve (depending on the size) of the potatoes.
  • Add the prepared potatoes to 1 quart of salted water and bring to a low boil.
  • Cook the potatoes until fork-tender (approximately 15-20 minutes)
  • Drain the potatoes, and lay them in an even layer on a baking sheet to cool.

To prepare the cucumbers:

  • Prepare three cucumbers (I used American cucumbers, but feel free to use English) by peeling, slicing, and salting.
  • Set aside and allow to drain in a colander for 30-45 minutes.

To assemble the salad:

  • Meanwhile, prepare the cooked shrimp by removing the tails and cut in half (if desired).
  • Slice the red onion, and chop the sugar snap peas into similarly sized bite-sized pieces and add them to a large mixing bowl.

Make the dill dressing:

  • Combine Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, lemon zest, lemon juice, sugar, and chopped fresh dill in a medium-sized bowl and whisk to combine.
  • Add all the ingredients to a large bowl and stir gently to combine.
  • Cover and refrigerate for 4-6 hours (but overnight is best) before serving.
  • Garnish with additional dill (dried, shown) and lemon slices (optional) before serving.
  • Serve cold.

Notes

Keep covered in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
