Japanese Potato Salad

As you all already know, Japanese is definitely my favorite food, it’s healthy, tasty, colorful. Besides the sushi I also love their potato salad which I have tried to reproduce at home the other night.

It is actually one of the few Japanese dish which is not super complicated…which is some sort of relief : )

For the rice vinegar, don’t be cheap and get the original Japanese one which you can find at the small Japanese store in Gubei, for the other ingredients just get what you need at the cheap Chinese grocery store.

Ingredients (for about 6 servings): 原料(6人份量)

  • 3 potatoes – 3个土豆
  • 1/2 carrot – 半胡萝卜
  • 1/2 cucumber – 半个黄瓜
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar – 1 汤匙米醋
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise – 3汤匙蛋黄酱
  • 1/2 tsp salt – 1/2茶匙食用盐

Wash, peel and boil the potatoes 把土豆洗干净,去皮后煮熟


Cut the carrot and cucumber into very thin slices 把胡萝卜和黄瓜切片


With a fork mash the potatoes 用叉子把土豆捣成糊状

Then add carrots and cucumber. Adjust with salt and dress with the rice vinegar and mayonnaise  添加胡萝卜和黄瓜。再加盐米醋和蛋黄酱。


Put in the fridge and serve cold. 冷藏乘冷上菜即可
