*I think this needs 2 tsp of salt, but I do like things on the salty side. I recommend adding 1 1/2 tsp, tasting, and then adding more if needed
** You want to end up with 2 lbs total, after slicing. I used my mandolin to slice the potatoes (WAY easier!) but I found I couldn't use the whole potato without almost slicing my fingers off. So, I recommend buying a little over 2 lbs of potatoes, so that you have a little wiggle room!
