Hearty Deli Style Taro Root and Tuna Salad

Hearty Deli Style Taro Root and Tuna Salad

For those of you who are bored of normal potato salad...
This dish's dense, sticky texture is great.


Satoimo (taro root)
5-6 large
Canned tuna
1 can
Foil-wrapped cream cheese
2 pieces - 33g
to taste
1 tablespoon
Salt and pepper
a small amount


1. Peel the satoimo and chop roughly. Cut the cheese into 8~10 pieces. Boil the satoimo until they're soft enough to allow a chopstick to easily pass through the center.
2. Strain the satoimo with a sieve, return them to the pan and cook until the water has all evaporated.
3. While the satoimo is still hot, mash roughly, add the cheese, strained tuna, mayonnaise and ponzu sauce. Mix and serve!
