Idaho’s Potatoes

Potatoes – like the ones so famously from Idaho – supply 32% of your daily Vitamin B6 in just one serving. Even better, potatoes boast 70% of daily Vitamin C. While American’s love their potatoes baked, French fried and hashed, enjoy crisp and delicious potatoes in this very simple raw salad.

3 large potatoes

1 tsp salt

1 tbsp sesame seed oil

Peel potatoes. Finely slice into spaghetti or fettuccine-sized strips or use a special gadget available at Asian cooking stores to shred them. Soak in a large dish of salted water for 30 minutes to release starch. Rinse under cold water. Remove all moisture by patting with paper towels or using a salad spinner. Pile high on a plate and drizzle with sesame seed oil.
