Patagonian Potato Salad

Having become an expert now on the Patagonia region and the hemispheres, it was time for Travis to put his culinary skills to the test in a classic Patagonian recipe.

Bring a pot of water to a boil and help your child carefully add 1 (24-ounce) bag baby red potatoes and 1 tablespoon salt. Boil for 20 minutes, until tender.

Drain the potatoes, then transfer to a bowl filled with ice. Travis loved watching the potatoes get this ice bath!

Cut the potatoes into quarters and place in a large bowl. Thinly slice 4 green onions and add to the bowl, along with 2 tablespoons minced parsley.

To prepare the vinaigrette, whisk together 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard, 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, and 1/3 cup olive oil.

Travis enjoyed reading a few final facts about Aregntina on the recipe card, including the ritual of drinking mate tea and the afternoon siesta. I even let him try a sip of mate, a hit!
