Japanese Potato Salad {Speedy Recipe}

Introducing Spatula, Spoon and Saturday Speedy Recipe. Because I kinda have less time but I am trying to meet the one-new-blog-post a week commitment. So I will be brief. The recipe will be fairly quick and to the point. If you are new to cooking, please feel free to leave questions below.

Ingredients – Salad

  • 3 potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and grated
  • 1 cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1 boiled egg

Ingredients – Dressing

  • 3 tbsp Japanese mayonaise
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1.   Boil potatoes in salted water until cooked. Drain. Mash lightly.
  2.   While still hot, add grated carrot. The residual heat should be enough to semi-cook the carrot
  3.   Toss through mayo, rice, salt and pepper. Taste and season again if necessary.
  4.   Stir through boiled egg and cucumber.

Serve with

  1. Any Japanese-inspired bento
  2. Barbecued chicken wings (teriyaki glaze)
  3. Ham & cheese sandwich
  4. Beer!!!
