Recipe Notes

Important notes:

  1. Drying potato. After potatoes are cooked and drain cooked water, bring the potatoes back into used pot and heat it up again to dry the potatoes. Water in potatoes evaporates, so that potato salad will be fluffy, not sticky.
  2. Season potatoes when potatoes are still hot: After 1 step, add vinegar and salt in hot potatoes. Hot potatoes soak up vinegar and salt.
  3. Mayonnaise making: Certain oil wont work making mayonnaise. Rice oil did not work. And, do not recommend using olive oil for using Japanese style potato salad.
