I must confess that I used chives here because I'm not a dill fan (except in pickles). I cooked the potatoes this morning, bigger Yukon Golds as I wanted this for my dinner main dish. I cut them in half and scooped out some of the spud (which I added to the salmon filling with a little salt)and popped them under the broiler to heat and brown them a bit. This made a lovely dinner that was healthy as well was something different and very good. The flavors all came together beautifully. Thanks Jewelies for posting this.
