Story Behind this Recipe
Don't you have time when you really want to eat potatoes but don't have time to boil and cool them? This recipe makes things easier by shortening the cooking time.
When boiling potatoes and carrots, add the carrots first, then add the potatoes a little later. This way, the carrots will be cooked and potatoes will still be crispy. Be careful when using the slicer. Don't cut your fingers!
