  1. Half fill a large saucepan with water; add potatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cook 10 to 12 minutes or until just tender. Drain and cut in half.
  2. Cook bacon in a lightly oiled frying pan over high heat until crisp. Drain on paper towels.
  3. Place warm potatoes in a large serving bowl; add eggs, cucumbers and parsley then toss gently.
  4. Combine mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice and paprika in a small bowl. Add to salad and toss gently. Sprinkle bacon and dill on top.

Cook's Tip

Both the bacon and eggs can be cooked ahead of time and used cold. It is only the potatoes that must be used warm.
