Chop Chop

There is a commercial on TV right now that says “there is nothing more therapeutic after a long day of work than chopping and cooking… NOT” but for me? That is exactly true. I sharpen my knives, set my cutting board on the counter and chop. I like the evenness. I like the systematic chops.

This potato salad is heavy on the chopping, but the end result is thoroughly satisfying and filling.
