Crunchy slaw, baked beans, potato salad: You’ll love the classics even more spiked with a few jazzy new ingredients. Perfect for packing off to picnic or patio, for a hero’s welcome.

Crème fraîche is a thickened cream product with a mildly tangy, nutty flavor; you’ll often find it in tubs near the gourmet cheeses. If you can’t find it, you can substitute full-fat sour cream. Be careful to cook the potatoes only until just tender and no more; that way, they’ll hold their shape.
