Potato fingers with char and dandelion

Antipasto dal facile e gustoso


  • 300 gr di patate crude
  • 300 gr di patate lessate
  • 300 gr di salmerino affumicato
  • 100 gr di denti di cane(tarassaco o altra erba amara)
  • olio extravergine d’oliva del Garda

Pass the boiled potatoes through a sieve and season them with salt, pepper and oil.
Peel the raw potatoes and cut them into thin slices, place them onto a sheet of cling film, slightly overlapping, so as to form a 15 x 5 cm rectangle.
Spread the cooked potato mixture over the raw potato slices, place at the centre the smoked char cut into strips and roll the composition into a cylinder, making sure there is no air trapped inside and pressing energetically. Leave in the fridge for one hour until the rolls become firm.
Remove the cling film from the potato roll and brown it in a skillet with the oil; then cut the roll into round slices and serve it with the dandelion salad.
If no dandelion is available, use cress, that can be found in summer alongside the mountain streams in which the char lives.
