Eating raw potatoes may not be popular in this country, but it’s common in China, where HLing says julienned raw potato is mixed with vinegar and sesame oil for a refreshing summer dish. It’s crispy and not at all starchy. Sichuan restaurants serve that dish here. There are also stir-fried potato dishes that leave the potatoes quite crispy.
Go ahead and try raw potato, but do use the freshest potatoes you can find. (supermarket spuds are just too old.) Peel, slice, and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. See what you think!
Caveat: A couple of hounds have reported being allergic to raw potatoes.
