    Funny, it sounds tasty. But I am Swiss, and I never heard of Swiss Roll. Is that something like Swiss Miss, which exists in the USA only and nobody believed me, that I never heard of it, when I first moved to L.A.? I am curious how it tasts.

    The "Swiss roll" part of the name probably refers to the technique of rolling a filling into something else - whether a pastry, cake, bread, etc. It would have nothing to do with the origin of the recipe itself. I've run into many fascinating (and delicious) recipes that have nothing to do with the nationalities mentioned in their titles - lobster a l'Americaine is a great example, definitely French, nothing American about it, but very nice. I'm going to try this Swiss roll salad - it sounds very good!

    Funny how things go. I guess Swiss roll is a own way of rolling things. Other than rolling in - what ever-way. lol.

    Yes, it is like the Salad dressing, In the USA there is the French dressing, In France there are other dressings etc. Or French Fries, which in France are called Pommes Frites. (translates to fried Potatoes) etc, etc, etc,... Thanks for your replies. ;)

    I just returned from Peru and watched a chef prepare a roll very similar to this. He flatten the potato in about 8 x 10", spread with Mayo, chicken salad, sliced avocado, rolled the potato and then spread the top with a medium hot pepper aioli and garnished with lime slices. It was terrific. I will make your recipe this week. Thanks!
