Chefs, we’re doing something exciting with our mashed potatoes in this recipe: adding an apple to the pot. Boiled and mashed right alongside our Yukon Gold potatoes, seasonal apple brightens and balances the classic side with its crisp sweetness. This mash pairs perfectly with crispy-skinned salmon, topped with dollops of horseradish-infused sour cream. (The horseradish, already grated and soaked in vinegar, adds a kick to the garnish—so use only as much as you’d like!)
