Fingerling Potatoes

Frieda's Specialty Produce - Mustard Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

Fingerling Potatoes are available in several varieties, each with their own flavor profile, including Russian Banana, French and Ruby Crescent. These little spuds never fail to impress as a side dish that could easily steal the main course’s thunder.

Easy to prepare and quick to cook, we roast the Fingerling Potatoes and then dress them with mustard and Meyer Lemon zest. Dinner is on the table in 30 minutes!


Frieda's Specialty Produce - Jicama Orange and Onion Salad

Also known as a Mexican potato, Jicama (“Hee-Ka-Ma”) is a versatile vegetable with a juicy, crisp, potato-apple texture and mildly sweet flavor that can be enjoyed fresh or cooked.

Because of its mild flavor and crispy texture, Jicama often plays second fiddle in a recipe.  For this recipe, we put this root front and center, and complement it with juicy orange segments and pungent onion slices. The fresh orange-cilantro dressing ties the dish together beautifully.
