This is one hot potato you’re not going to want to let go of. This Miso Lemon Smashed Potato recipe features soft baby potatoes, pressed and baked until they achieve a crispy exterior. An added burst of flavor from the vinaigrette featuring Wesson Canola Oil, the vibrant combination of the zing of lemon, the umami richness of miso, and the tang of vinegar. Garnish these potatoes with freshly chopped chives and toasted sesame seeds for added aroma and crunch, and you’ve got yourself a crowd-pleasing appetizer. You might want to make a second batch, just in case.
