Easy in the Microwave! Super-Quick Potato Salad

By adding the vinegar and sugar while the potatoes are still pipping hot, this salad becomes so much tastier! And it's easy to make since you use the microwave!

Ingredients

Potatoes (medium)
3-4
Carrot
1/4
Ham
2 slices
Cucumber
1
Mayonnaise
to taste
Vinegar
2 tablespoons
Sugar
1/2 tablespoon
Salt and pepper
as needed (about 4 shakes)

Steps

1. Peel the potatoes and chop them up into bite-sized pieces!
2. Put the potatoes in a microwave-safe plastic bag, leave the bag open slightly, and microwave at 600 W for about 4-5 minutes!
3. While the potatoes are cooking in the microwave, slice the carrot, cucumber and ham. Rub a little salt into the cucumber.
4. Once the potatoes are done, wet the carrot slices. Then place them on a microwave-safe plate, cover with plastic wrap, and microwave at 600 W for 2 minutes!
5. While the potatoes are still pipping hot, mash them in the plastic bag with the palms of your hands ! Be careful, it will be hot. You won't burn yourself if you cover the plastic bag with a towel!
6. Mix the vinegar and sugar into the mashed potatoes! Then, add the microwaved carrot to the potatoes, and let it cool!
7. Once it cools down, squeeze out the excess water from the cucumber, combine all the remaining ingredients, and it's done!
