This simple side along with any heavy entree dish. It's a combination of salad and mash potatoes. Traditionally we cook mashed potatoes that creamy one, but this hand-pressed mash potato looks pretty and tasty at the same time. The traditional mash potato is a little heavy, but this one is with the lemony vinaigrette and that helps to refresh the tongue and makes this hand-pressed mashed potato light, and of-course the salty capers are a bonus. You can add any vinaigrette that you like. This recipe idea is adopted from a celebrity chef's recipe and recreated with my own spices.
