Summery Potato Salad

GLUTEN-FREE, (DAIRY-FREE), (VEGAN)

Cooking, then cooling potatoes increases the ‘resistant starch’ in them. This is a type of fibre that the beneficial bacteria in our intestines love. It is called ‘resistant’ as it resists being digested, so reaches our large intestine intact (which is where most of the bacteria in our intestines live). Cold potatoes therefore have some additional nutritional benefits over hot potatoes – and so are perfect for salads. Leave the skins on for added fibre.
