What do you get when you cross purple potatoes, pink radishes, and green herbs together and top it all off with one lemony sauce? Our new recipe for garden latkes, that’s what!
We tossed out the old recipe for potato latkes, which is usually just white potatoes and flour, and gave it all sorts of color, freshness, and flavor. Grated purple potatoes and pink radishes provide the base, with lots of antioxidants and sweet, bright flavor, and we added all sorts of green herbs to the mix—chives, scallions, parsley, whatever you have on hand is perfect. To top it off (literally!), we kicked up the usual sour cream sauce and added a touch of our Meyer Lemon Wasabi Mustard. So creamy, so luscious, and just a bit tangy.
Enjoy these potato cakes fresh off the griddle for a soul-satisfying summer treat.
