THE MISEDUCATION OF POTATO DILL

Potato salad is a summer staple. My father goes nuts for this one, and swears it is better than any non-vegan one he has ever eaten. the fresh dill gives it a nice fresh flavour that rings in summer vibes.  Dill has cool compounds called monoterpenes, these compounds help to initiate detoxification and anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral processes in our bodies, making them a great addition, not only for its taste.

I personally think the other key component of my potato dill salad, is the addition of sweet baby gerkins, and gerkin pickling juice to the otherwise savoury dish!
