So here’s the thing… I’m really not your typical potato eater, but there comes this time each summer when my CSA box is crammed full of fresh organic potatoes. I’m not one to waste and they taste SO good.

This recipe is just in time for the holiday. It’s easy to make, delicious, and you’ll be giving Aunt Millie a run for her money when you bring this recipe to the family BBQ! No more cold mayonnaise-laden potato salad for you, my friend.

  1. Why don’t you recommend eating potatoes regurlarly? It’s clearly better than eating a pizza or a slice of bread. The whole glycemic index thing isn’t very sound.

    All the best,

    1. Hi Fred. I agree! I personally find white potatoes eaten more than occasionally tend to spike the blood sugar a bit too much for many of my clients and being a nightshade are often poorly tolerated. We’re all biologically different and they work great for some folks. Potatoes are definitely not an enemy or “bad” food. I hope that clarifies.
