      Really delicious! The lemon zest adds a nice dimension and a complex flavor that reminded me of gremolata. We used small russet potatoes, didn't even bother peeling them, and it was still great.

      This is caper-licious!!! I love capers and they go great in mashed potatoes!!! I used medium sized Idaho potatoes instead of Yukon Golds and I used half-n-half in place of milk so they tasted extra creamy! Loved this recipe, will definitely make again!! Thanks, Cookgirl!
