You will need Japanese Kewpie mayonnaise for this to taste right but it’s easy to get hold of, either a local Asian supermarket or Amazon will sort you out! I would also advise the chunkiest ham you can get, either go for trimmings or bake a ham joint and use some in this.
2 large floury potatoes
1/2 small tin Sweetcorn, drained
100g ham, chopped
1/2 medium carrot, julienned
1” cucumber, very finely sliced
6 tbsp kewpie mayonnaise
Pinch of salt
– Peel and chop up your potatoes and boil in a large pan of salted water for 20 minutes. Drain and return to the pan, let them air dry for 5 minutes.
– Mash the potatoes until smooth.
– Add your other ingredients and give a good stir through. Eyeball it, if you feel you want different proportions go for it! Alter it to your taste.
– Voila! It’s a Japanese Potato salad!
