My favorite potato salad has to be Japanese Potato Salad, its creamy, slightly tangy and the carrots and cucumber give it a wonderful texture and flavor. Kewpie Mayonnaise is a must have for this recipe! If you haven’t tried Japanese Mayo before, you’re missing out – it’s so much better than your standard Hellmann’s or Best Foods because of the higher content of egg yolks and unique blend of spices. I’m sharing a very basic recipe, you can also add chopped hard boiled eggs or chopped ham if you prefer.
The version on the left is made in Japan and you can typically find it at Asian Markets or purchase online here, the version on the right is made in the U.S. has a slightly different flavor, but you’ll have an easier time finding it in regular grocery stores or purchase online here.
This steamer basket (purchase here) is awesome, it works perfectly with the Instant Pot and makes it a breeze to lift the potatoes in and out of the pot.
If you want to include chopped hard boiled eggs in your potato salad, just place them on top of the potatoes in the basket, they will be perfectly hard boiled when the potatoes are done cooking, place into a bowl of ice water to cool them before chopping.
