Prejean's Potato Salad

If you order one of the spectacular gumbos served at Prejean's restaurant in Lafayette, Louisiana, the wait staff will likely ask: “Would you like potato salad with that?” The version they serve isn’t simply meant to be a side; here, it is common for diners to stir the salad right into the gumbo. Doing so cools the gumbo down to room temperature and adds a creaminess that's akin to melting ice cream.Chris Granger
