Although potato salad is a widely known dish, many people don’t know that potato salad is becoming widely popular in the Asian community, especially Korea. However, the Korean version of the potato salad is a bit different. In the Korean version, we add ham, which we normally don’t see in a side dish, as well as cucumbers and fruits, like apples and raisins. It’s a very simple recipe that takes hardly any cooking. Here’s how you make this delicious side dish.
What you’ll need are: potatoes, a couple eggs, carrots, cucumbers, onions, ham, mayonnaise, apples, and raisins.
First, boil the potatoes until they become tender. Then cut them into bite size pieces. Let these sit on the side for a while.
While you are boiling the potatoes, boil the eggs with them. After the eggs are boiled, cut them into bite sized pieces as well.
Next, we will have to prepare the other ingredients. Cut the cucumbers, onions, and carrots into small pieces so that it doesn’t overpower the dish too much. After cutting these, cut up the apples into bite sized pieces.
Now, it’s time to mix all the ingredients together. Put all the ingredients in one bowl, and little by little, add the mayonnaise while you continue to mix. Do not worry if the potatoes end up getting mashed. This only gives it texture and most of the time, people prefer having the potatoes a bit mashed up.
Continue mixing until everything is uniform.
