3. POTATO SALAD WITH AVOCADO CREMA

This one rewrites the rules. Instead of mayo, this potato salad is made with an avocado crema of guacamole and crème fraîche. The perfect balance of salty, crispy, tangy, sweet and herby. It’s summer on a plate!

5. POTATO CAESAR SALAD

A twist on the classic “see-sal”. The usual croutons are replaced with crispy potatoes that become the star of the show.
