This is one of those recipes where, every Pesach, I ask myself why I don’t make it all year round! It is absolutely delicious and can easily be made ahead of time. Buy a mandolin if you don’t have one, it makes easy work of slicing the potatoes and you won’t regret the addition to your Pesach tool kit!
