We love this new take on an old favorite! This recipe is made with watermelon for a sweet bite, onions for a bit of kick, and a fresh lemon dressing. But the real surprise are these creamy Gourmet Medley™ Potatoes from Klondike. Not only do they add a ton of color to this dish, but they add a lot of flavor and healthy nutrients, too!
Making potatoes a part of your regular diet is a great way to invest in your health. Potatoes deliver a ton of Vitamin B6 - this is important because B vitamins are responsible for converting food into energy. Potatoes are also a good source of fiber, vitamin C, and have more potassium than a banana! Be sure to leave the skin on your potatoes because 20% of the nutrients are in the potato skins.
