One of my favorites: Japanese Potato Salad!


because one of my very good friends just moved to Japan

because it’s raining in Shanghai and I feel like just spend the whole day in bed

and because I love Japanese food!

I have decided to bring back to the main page one of my favorites: the potato salad!

Enjoy my friends!


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):

  • 3 potatoes
  • 1/2 carrot
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Wash, peel and boil the potatoes


Cut the carrot and cucumber into very thin slices


With a fork mash the potatoes

Then add carrots and cucumber. Adjust with salt and dress with the rice vinegar and mayonnaise  .


Put in the fridge and serve cold.
