Asian-style Potato Salad

Asian-style Potato Salad is great twist to a common, southern favorite. 


  • 1/4 cup of mayo 
  • 3 tsp of miso salad dressing
  • 2 tsp of soy sauce 
  • 2 tsp of sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp of garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 diced green onions 
  • 1 tbs of finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 12 red potatoes

Cooking Instructions

First, boil a large pot of water and place the red potatoes into the pot. Cook the potatoes until soft a on medium heat. Once cooked, remove the potatoes from the pot and all the potatoes to cook in the refrigerator

Next, in a bowl whisk together the mayo, miso dressing, soy sauce, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Depending on your taste for sweet or salty. You could want to add more miso dressing or soy sauce. All the dressing to chill in the refrigerator. 

Once the potatoes are cool, dice up into chunks, You can remove the skin from the potatoes if you do not want to eat it. Place all the slice potatoes in a bowl and mix in the dressing. Next, add the cilantro, green onion, and sesame seeds and mix everything together.

All the salad to chill in the refridgerator for a hour before eating.

Next time i make this salad, I believe I will add bacon or vegetarian bacon to add some more texture to the salad. Also, I recommend to toast the seseme seeds because I did not do it when making this recipe. Though, for a Sunday afternoon recipe made as an experiment and on the fly, I think it turned out really well.


Once the potatoes are cool.
