Featured Potato of the Week: Purples/Blues

DENVER, May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — These colorful and unique potatoes are relative newcomers to the market. Purple, (or sometimes called blue), potatoes have a deep purple skin with flesh that ranges from purple to almost white. The rich, vibrant color and luscious taste make tossed salads a favored use, like this Blackened Blue Potato Salad. The moist, firm flesh retains its shape and adds rich color to the salads, while the mild yet distinctly nutty flavor naturally complements the green salad flavors.

Remember, a single, skin-on medium-sized potato (5.3 ounces) has just 110 calories, more potassium than a banana, and almost half your daily value of vitamin C (45 percent), with zero fat, sodium or cholesterol, so you can enjoy potatoes every night of the week.
