Kannichiwa, gourmets! Japanese potato salad is a Japanese homemade tradition! And we are ready to share the recipe of this tradition with you today.
How to cook Japanese potato salad?
Almost all countries have their own interpretations of different potato salads, the Japanese did not stay away and prepare Japanese potato salad at home. In fact, potato salad in Japanese is a combination of balanced vegetables wrapped in creamy and unique Japanese mayonnaise. When cooking, you can replace Japanese mayonnaise with the usual purchased one with the addition of 2 tablespoons of rice vinegar and 2 teaspoons of sugar yourself, but as you understand, this will still not be a Japanese potato salad.
To prepare this Japanese salad, we take an egg, cucumber, carrot, a little ham, corn and potatoes themselves. Cucumber and carrot are covered with salt for quick pickling, so they will give the maximum amount of water and will be able to absorb the taste of the other ingredients, which will not separate them in this salad.
Add rice vinegar to the boiled potatoes. This will give stickiness and preserve the structure of potatoes, otherwise the salad will fall apart into separate components.
