Japanese Potato Salad

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 30min
Number of servings: 4

300g (10.5oz.) potato
50g (1.8oz.) carrot
50g (1.8oz.) onion
50g (1.8oz.) cucumber
2 slices of cooked ham
1/2 cup whole kernel corn (canned)
4 tbsp. mayonnaise
1/2 tbsp. vinegar (rice or grain)
salt and pepper

1. Slice the onion, sprinkle with a bit of salt, and leave for 2~3 minutes until limp. Wash and drain well. Use a paper towel to squeeze out any excess water. *This removes the bitter taste and strong smell of the onion.
2. Slice the cucumber into thin rounds (you can use a vegetable slicer if you have). Sprinkle with a bit of salt. When they become limp, drain well and gently squeeze with a paper towel. *Removing excess water from the cucumber will keep the salad from becoming wet.
3. Cut sliced ham into 1/2 inch (1cm) square pieces. Slice the potato into 1/2 inch (1cm) half rounds. Place the potato slices in a pot, lightly wash (to remove extra starch), add water until covered, add 1/2 tsp. of salt, and put on high heat. When it becomes to a boil, turn down to medium and cook for about 12 minutes. 4. Check the potatoes with a skewer. When they are done, drain well, transfer to a bowl and mash with a fork while they are still hot. Season with 1/2 tbsp. of vinegar, salt and pepper. *The seasonings will make the potato tasty.
5. Slice the carrot into 0.1 inch (3mm) quarter rounds. Boil for 3 minutes and drain well.
6. When the potatoes and carrots are cool enough, combine all the ingredients in one bowl and season with 4 tbsp. of mayonnaise, salt and pepper.

You had me at

“NO CELERY”!!!!!!

Таня Норман says:

Не верится что это классический, японский картофельный салат! Это явно заимствованный у нас”Оливье”! Правда нет яиц и вместо горошка, кукуруза, но это мелочи.И очень забавно кушать ” Оливье” палочками!

I don’t know how much of a difference the Japanese mayo I used made, but this was sooo good! I made it without ham or corn because I didn’t have either of those, but it still turned out really well. I’ll be making this again soon. Thanks. 🙂

Quite salty don’t you think?

Julio Villalta says:

this was great, thank you for sharing…


hello…i just wana ask if its ok to add a horseradish tree or moringa leaves???

Ria says:

If you steam or boil with skin on the potato you will retain most of the vitamins otherwise use the carrot water for stock/soup. Thanks for recipe.

C. Catlover says:

This should be called “mashed” potato salad. Looks great except for ham because I am vegan.

Anna says:

I don’t think my mum intended to make potato salad with this recipe in mind but she puts onion and celery in hers

akidos says:

SensaiMan says:

Lukas Strautins says:

I actually like to not peel my potatoes for salads, it adds extra texture and more vitamins 🙂

Nina Roberts says:

That’s a lot of salt

lindachan04 says:

This is similar to the potato salad my mother used to make, except she left the potatoes a little chunkier and sometimes added a chopped boiled egg. Thank you for bringing back a wonderful memory!
