Poteto sarada…

The Daring Cook Challenge this month is HEALTHY POTATO SALADS FROM AROUND THE WORLD!

Jami Sorrento was our June Daring Cooks hostess and she chose to challenge us to celebrate the humble spud by making a delicious and healthy potato salad. The Daring Cooks Potato Salad Challenge was sponsored by the nice people at the United States Potato Board. The USPB organizes a recipe competition but I don’t participate.
See the other bloggers’ many original salads here.

Why would I cook something not healthy ? All my salads are healthy. I made 3, but not on the same day. On different weeks.

The 2 other posts are :

petit aïoli with new potatoes and Spring veggies (France)
pari pari crispy potato salad with pickled cherry dressing (Japan + France)

Here is “typical” Japanese style potato salad.

It looks very creamy because the potatoes are mashed into a sauce. The amount of sauce is quite reduced.

With starchy steamed potatoes.

Japanese mayonnaise. Nothing special, salt, egg yolk, canola oil, rice vinegar to make it very liquid. They buy it… most of the time. I make mine.

Mustard (or dry grains).

What you have in stock.

Mash the potato with a fork, add the mayonnaise, more vinegar, mustard… at your taste. Add in the other ingredients to this puree.
