Crisp Potato Salad

Crisp Potato Salad

You can reduce the cooling time after boiling! I like the crispy texture.

Ingredients: 4 servings

Potatoes
2 medium
Cucumber
1
Carrot
1/2 small
Onion
1/4
Ham
3-4 slices
★ Mayonnaise
4 tablespoons
★ Vinegar
1 tablespoon
★ Sugar
2 teaspoons
★Whole grain mustard (If you have it)
1-2 teaspoons (as much as you like)
★Garlic powder (If you have it)
A small amount (as much as you like)
Salt and pepper
a small amount

Steps

1. Shred the potatoes and carrots with a slicer.
2. Thinly slice the cucumber and sprinkle with salt. Slice the onion and soak in the water. Cut the ham into thin strips.
3. Boil the carrots and potatoes then drain and rinse with water. Do not over cook. See the Hints section below
4. Squeeze water out of cucumber and onion slices and place in a bowl. Add the ★ marked ingredients and combine. Season with salt and pepper and done.
5. ※ During Step 3, instead of rinsing them, you can leave the potatoes and carrots out to cool. If you do so, soak the vegetables before boiling them. The texture will be slightly different.
