Japanese Potato Salad Recipe | JustOneCookbook.com

Today I’m guest posting at An Italian Cooking in the Midwest while the author Paola is having a wonderful adventure in Southeast Asia.  As the name of her blog suggests, she is an Italian who lives in the US Midwest and shares a variety of Italian dishes including ones that we’re not too familiar in America.  Since I love Italian food, I am really glad to have learned a lot from visiting Paola’s blog.  I think one of the links that ties Paola and I together is that we both love Japanese and Italian food.

Now you might wonder what Japanese Potato Salad is and how it’s different from American potato salad.  The answers are at An Italian Cooking in the Midwest.  Oh before you leave, please remember to come back this Friday to check out Potato Salad Pork Roll using the leftover Potato Salad.

Japanese Potato Salad
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 6
  • 2 Russet potatoes
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 ½ inch carrot
  • ¼ cup corns
  • 2 nch English cucumbers (The cucumber in this photo is about 3 inches, but you just need about 2 inches)
  • 2 black forest ham slices
  • ⅓ to ½ cup Japanese mayonnaise
  • Salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  1. Peel potato skins and cut into 1 ½ inch pieces. They should be roughly about the same size so that they’ll be done cooking around be the same. Put potatoes in a large pot and add water until it covers all the potatoes.
  2. Boil potatoes with high heat. After water boils, lower heat to medium and cook until a skewer can goes through the potato smoothly. Drain the water from pot and put the potato back on the stove again.
  3. On the stove, evaporate water and moisture of the potatoes over medium-high heat (for less than 1 minute). Shift the pot in circular motion so the potatoes wont’ get burnt. When you see there no liquid in the pan, remove from heat.
  4. Mash the potatoes but leave some small chunks for texture. Sprinkle salt and transfer it into a big bowl and let it cool on the kitchen counter.
  5. Meanwhile prepare a boiled egg. Remove the shell and mash the egg with a fork in a small bowl. Set aside.
  6. Cut carrots into quarter (or half) and then slice it thinly. Put them in a microwave-safe container and cover it with water. Microwave for a few minutes until a skewer goes smoothly through the carrot (don’t overcook). Drain water and cool down.
  7. Peel the cucumbers (leave some skin on to create stripe pattern) and cut into quarter. Then slice it thinly.
  8. Dice the sliced hams into small size.
  9. Prepare and boil corn (canned corn kernels works as well).
  10. Add hams and veggies into the mashed potato bowl. Grind some pepper over and mix well.
  11. Add mayonnaise and mix until incorporated.
  12. Add boiled eggs and mix a bit but don’t over do it. Let it cool and keep in the fridge till you are ready to serve.

    Lovely potato salad… I am gearing up for Spring with this (without ham though :))and I am eyeing your bowl too ;)

  • Raymund August 31, 2011, 12:35 am

    Amazing, I guess most of the food bloggers think alike, I made one of these 4 days ago but not the Japanese version but nearly the same ingredients. I havent tried something like this before, its like a semi mashed potato salad. Love it

  • Giulietta| Alterkitchen August 31, 2011, 1:46 am

    Great recipe, great guest post! I love this potato salad!

  • Reese@SeasonwithSpice August 31, 2011, 1:52 am

    Yummy! I always love it when they serve it as a side at Japanese restaurants, but I’ve never thought of making the Japanese version at home. Gotta make this!

  • Manu August 31, 2011, 2:10 am

    Yum! I am “flying” over to Paola’s site to read your recipe!! :-) And now I can’t wait for Friday’s post! Looks delicious!

    BTW, I am not sure I told you… the ice cream was a HIT! We all loved it! :-) It was the hardest thing I have ever photographed though… the light kept reflecting on it! I had to take like 1000 pictures and only 2 or 3 came out fine!!! LOL Thanks so much for the delicious recipe!!! :-)

    • Nami September 2, 2011, 10:44 am

      1000?! Maybe you meant 100… :-D I also find it very difficult to photo shoot ice cream or soup! I’m so glad you liked the green tea ice cream! Yay!

  • Beth Michelle August 31, 2011, 2:16 am

    This potato salad looks amazing. Im heading over to check out your guest post :) LOVE that pretty little bowl!

  • Sissi August 31, 2011, 2:19 am

    Congratulations for the guest post and the award!
    So this is the famous Japanese potato salad! I have already seen it, for example in Shinya Shokudo and cookery books, but it was always much “poorer” and certainly didn’t look as beautiful as yours! Your salad looks like a complete meal. I don’t know how you manages to take a photo of something as basic as the potato salad in such a lovely way!
    I love the Japanese mayonnaise, it has such a “lively” taste compared to most European mayonnaise brands. Maybe only good French brands are equally good, but the taste is completely different. I also love the touch the bottle has and its practical side when squeezing.
    It was a wonderful idea to post this salad. I will certainly make it soon.
    By the way, the pork rolls would be similar to the extraordinary pork rolls that you posted some time ago and that I did dozens of times??? I can’t wait to see them!

    • Nami September 2, 2011, 2:24 pm

      I’m so happy you are enjoying those pork rolls! :-) The potato salad one will be my #1 favorite for sure. =)

  • Sonia August 31, 2011, 2:20 am

    You just remind me I have so long did not prepare this, my version was without ham, next time I would like to add some.

  • Mr. Three-Cookies August 31, 2011, 2:21 am

    Almost every time you present a Japanese dish that I am unfamiliar with, definitely interesting. The salad looks quite different with the vege’s and ham, its almost a meal in itself. Is that Japanese ham???:)

    • Nami September 2, 2011, 2:35 pm

      Hi Mr. Three-Cookies! I used black forest ham, which is our most fav ham.. :-) I’m glad to hear you find it interesting! :-)

  • Fern August 31, 2011, 2:25 am

    Love Japanese potato salad! Looks like the ones u get at the restaurant…will definitely try this thanks :)

  • Katherine Martinelli August 31, 2011, 2:53 am

    I’ve never had potato salad like this but I love the idea! Mashed potatoes are one of my favorite foods so I’m sure I would love this! Thanks :-)

  • Marina August 31, 2011, 3:01 am

    Wow, this really looks amazing! :)

  • lin August 31, 2011, 3:29 am

    looks yummy

    • Nami September 5, 2011, 1:44 am

      Thank you Lin!

  • Alessandra August 31, 2011, 3:41 am

    Ah I remember Japanese Mayo! Sometimes I can buy it here but it is quite expensive.

  • Carolyn August 31, 2011, 4:08 am

    This potato salad looks so wonderful and fresh. I wonder how Japanese mayo differs from the American kind?

    • Nami September 5, 2011, 9:59 pm

      Japanese mayonnaise is made with egg yolks instead of whole eggs, and apple cider (or rice) vinegar instead of distilled vinegar. Over all it is creamier in both color and texture. :-)

  • Shawn August 31, 2011, 5:28 am

    I get to have ham and corn in potato salad?! I want some today :)

  • Naoko August 31, 2011, 5:32 am

    My just loves this potato salad and I really like your photos. I have to learn to take better photos. Keep it up..

  • Mel@MyMuffinLab August 31, 2011, 5:42 am

    I love Japanese potato salad. Thank you for the recipe! I can’t wait to try.

  • Kelly August 31, 2011, 6:06 am

    Not creative? You’ve got to be kidding me. Beautiful, inventive and delicious as usual Ms. Nami :)

  • anncoo August 31, 2011, 6:22 am

    I love this potato salad and the colour is so pretty! I always have some potatoes in my pantry, so I’ll just pick some other ingredients from the market to make this salad.
    Thanks for sharing, Nami :)

  • Tobias @ T and Tea Cake August 31, 2011, 6:43 am

    Congratulations on your award – you truly deserve it!

    I find it so interesting that while the main ingredients are very similar to a German potato salad, the execution is so different, giving it its very own distinct character. Once I manage to get my hands on a bottle of Kewpie (hehe) mayonnaise, I will try out your recipe.


  • Sandra's Easy Cooking August 31, 2011, 8:13 am

    congrats Nami on the guest post..this recipe sounds very creamy and delicious! I love all the veggies that you used in this salad, I love it and will try it soon!! Great pics!:)

  • mycookinghut August 31, 2011, 8:26 am

    You made my favourite – Japanese potato salad! I used to order this a lot when I go to Jap restaurant!

  • Adora's Box August 31, 2011, 8:31 am

    Oh I love this, Nami. There used to be a Yaohan shopping center nearby and they sell this, on its own or as filling for sliced bread. Definitely my thing.

  • Allie August 31, 2011, 8:36 am

    Can’t wait to check out the guest post! I love your twist on potato salad-yum!

  • Liz August 31, 2011, 9:18 am

    Such a teaser…I’ll be back on Friday! Off to check out your guest post :)

  • Biren @ Roti n Rice August 31, 2011, 9:31 am

    A lovely potato salad…almot like a one pot meal! Love the colorful bowl too! :)

  • Cristina August 31, 2011, 9:32 am

    Nami: I like this version of Japanese Potato Salad and your photography is always so pristine and beautiful – makes me hungry visiting your blog. btw – just caught your guest post over at Food Lovers Website, great interview! ;)

  • Reem | Simply Reem August 31, 2011, 10:08 am

    This salad looks delicious Nami!!! I am heading over to read your guest post….
    Beautiful pictures as always….

  • chinmayie @ love food eat August 31, 2011, 10:51 am

    Looks great! Such a beautiful salad! I also LOVE the bowl it’s served in ;)

  • Mika August 31, 2011, 11:49 am

    Your picture is super as always ; )

    You know some reasons Jack is not that crazy about Japanese style potato salad, but both Kyle and Douglas love it! For me, anything potato nowadays is too heavy for my stomach… Hmmmm…. getting old….

  • skip to malou August 31, 2011, 11:54 am

    we also put ham into our “filipino” potato salad (if there’s such a thing hehe) but other than that Japanese Potato salad has other interesting addtitions like corn? Wow it’s interesting and I could imagine the taste when all the flavors are fused in. Japanese Food is definitely one of the cuisines I love best.
    Have a great day Nami. Im glad to be here!

  • Lilly August 31, 2011, 12:39 pm

    Nice and tasty potato salad! My mom would put ham in the potato salad as well! And apple and pickle =) I will post the recipe later since you’ve got me craving for some potato salad!

    Ps: off topic Nami do you know any good restaurants in SF or surroundings you can recommend? My boss is going to SF for the first time and I’m making a little to do and eat list for him.

  • claire @ the realistic nutritionist August 31, 2011, 12:52 pm

    YOUR PICTURES BLOW MY MIND. and that potato salad looks amazing! It’s almost a hybrid between egg and potato salad!

  • Stephanie @ Eat. Drink. Love. August 31, 2011, 1:21 pm

    Who doesn’t love a good potato salad! This looks wonderful, Nami. I’ve never had Japanese mayo though! How is it different from the American version? Is it hard to find in stores?

    • Nami September 5, 2011, 8:14 pm

      Japanese mayonnaise is made with egg yolks instead of whole eggs, and apple cider (or rice) vinegar instead of distilled vinegar. Over all it is creamier in both color and texture. You can find it in Japanese or Asian supermarket.

  • Cooking Gallery August 31, 2011, 2:12 pm

    This looks good, Nami…! I think I even have tried Japanese potato salad before, but without the egg. I think it’s a wonderful addition and I am convinced it would add an extra creamier flavour to the salad. Thanks for sharing another great recipe :)!

  • Tina (PinayInTexas) August 31, 2011, 3:34 pm

    Congrats on the guest post and the award, Nami! Well done! We’ve tried Japanese potato salad before when Ryan’s Japanese boss served it on their Christmas party! We love it!

  • tigerfish August 31, 2011, 4:10 pm

    I just had this as part of a donburi set for yesterday’s lunch! They gave too little salad – I finished it in a fork-ful :D

  • Kat @ Big Apple Little Kitchen August 31, 2011, 4:13 pm

    I was just trying to figure out what I should make with a few lonely potatoes on my counter! Thanks!

  • Sandra August 31, 2011, 6:07 pm

    Love this! I must admit I absolutley suck when it comes to making potato salad, but i think I can make this. And you have the prettiest serving dishes ever!!!

  • Belinda @zomppa August 31, 2011, 6:11 pm

    Very creamy and unusual!

  • elle marie Yamamoto August 31, 2011, 6:53 pm

    Hey there my friend! I feel like I’m always apologizing for missing your posts! I don’t remember the last time I cooked, up to my ears with “busy”. Once you’ve had Japanese potato salad, there’s not going back, it’s just simply, fab-u-lous! Fantastic DOF too!

  • Paolo @ DisgracesOnTheMenu August 31, 2011, 8:09 pm

    Nami, I have to confess that I have never had Japanese potato salad! This looks delicious though, the flavor profile seems similar to a Russian salad, very common in Northern Italy, so I know I’m going to love it. The pictures are fabulous as always :)

  • sheri August 31, 2011, 8:27 pm

    Oh gosh, another super summer treat! I wish it were warm and we were going on a picnic tomorrow instead of heading to school. Boo. This weekend should be a nice one, so we can pretend it’s still summer with your delicious Japanese potato salad. LOVE it!

  • Ann August 31, 2011, 10:32 pm

    Amazing potato salad and I LOVE the step-by-step pictures!

  • Kay Ecker August 31, 2011, 10:48 pm

    Nami, I love Japanese Potato Salad, especially with the hard boiled egg! There’s a place around us that makes their udon and they serve a complimentary potato salad that is so good. I’m not sure why an udon place serves it, but since it’s so good, I don’t question it. Yours looks great!!

  • Alyssa August 31, 2011, 11:06 pm

    This sounds great and your pictures, as always, are beautiful. One question, what is the difference between Japanese mayo and other kinds? I’m not sure I’ve ever seen it.

  • Debs @ DKC September 1, 2011, 12:44 am

    Interesting to see you mention that japanese potato salad is made with mashed potatoes!! When I made this sometime ago, it was for chopped potatoes as is normal to most people http://debskitchencreations.blogspot.com/2009/10/japanese-potato-salad-6-8-as-side-dish.html However, I definitely like the sound of mashing the potatoes, my mother used to made it that way but just mixed with salad cread instead of mayo! LOL

  • chopinandmysaucepan September 1, 2011, 3:24 am

    Looks very good as usual Nami. I’m attracted to the different colours in this potato salad just as much as the beautiful bowl that holds it!

  • Mandy - The Complete Cook Book September 1, 2011, 4:34 am

    What a fabulous potato salad Nami and I LOVE your serving bowl!
    Have a happy day.
    :-) Mandy

  • Barefeet In The Kitchen September 1, 2011, 6:42 am

    This looks great! I’ve never added these ingredients to my potato salad, but I like all of them. I bet I’d love them together.

  • Von September 1, 2011, 7:16 am

    I love potato salads :) The japanese ones are so different though- I usually have them at buffets, and they taste so good I fill myself up so much with them! tehehe….I love how they’re sorta of sweet (especially with the corn)- I should try making this at home some time!

  • the modern peasant September 1, 2011, 8:37 am

    I’m sure the taste is hard to resist :), but just for the sake of making healthier choices, I would probably use olive oil instead of mayo and some home-cooked and chilled pork instead of ham (watch out for those nitrates!).

  • Katrina @ In Katrina's Kitchen September 1, 2011, 9:44 am

    I’ve never met a potato salad I didn’t like ;) Nami this looks delicious! I finally figured out how to use my Reader so I’m subscribed so I won’t miss anything from ya! ♥

  • Ana Helena Campbell September 1, 2011, 9:59 am

    Love this potato salad and the step by step photos. It makes so much easier to visualize the process of the dish. Beautiful photos, Thanks for sharing!

  • Caroline September 1, 2011, 10:51 am

    Looks absolutely delicious, Nami! I love all of the vibrant colors in the dish. Great recipe. :) Hope you’re having a great day so far.

  • Lyn September 1, 2011, 12:59 pm

    Congrats on your blog award, Nami! :D
    Your potato salad looks so fantastic and the recipe is really very easy! Fantastic guest post! ;)
    I made egg with Japanese mayonnaise (I always buy the same Japanese mayonnaise that you used in the pic, that’s the best one I found after trying others) very often as all of us love it and whenever there’s any gatherings or fun day out with my closest cousin and her family, my nephew and nieces would ask for it every time w/o fail! :)
    We’d tried cucumbers, carrots (some times raw) and corn kernels dipped in mayo too but all separately tho. We love them so much, esp my gals. Now I’m gonna try mixing everything together! I’m sure we’ll love this too! :D
    I’m so looking forward to your Potato Salad Pork Rolls!

    Have a wonderful day!

  • vianney/ sweet life September 1, 2011, 3:11 pm

I always love seeing everyone’s personal twist on potato salad. There are so many types and styles! Hope you are doing well and having a great weekend.

  • Melissa February 11, 2013, 4:58 pm

    I just made this potato salad and I am so very happy that I found your blog! I have been getting a potato salad in the pre-made bentos I buy occasionally from a local store and absolutely fell in love with the potato salad. This recipe come soooooo SOOOOOO close. It is so yummy! Thank you for sharing!

    • Nami February 11, 2013, 5:41 pm

      Hi Melissa! Thank you for trying this recipe. I’m glad my recipe is close to your favorite Japanese potato salad! Hope you can adjust to make it to a perfect recipe. :)

  • KD May 27, 2013, 7:46 pm

    Wonderful. Hubby doesn’t eat meat so no ham. It just so happened I had a mess of mashed potatoes, grilled corn & wanted a potato salad. This fit perfectly. Didn’t have Kewpie but made do with what I had on had. Fine diced the carrots (uncooked), we really loved it; thank you! Such a flexible recipe: will add peas next time around (it’s something my Japanese-Hawaiian mom would’ve done.)

    • Nami May 27, 2013, 11:15 pm

      Hi KD! So happy to hear you and your husband liked the recipe! Thank you very much for your kind feedback. :)

  • rita espiritu August 6, 2013, 10:25 pm

    Potato salad.i like it….great dish.

      Hi Rita! Thank you! :)

  • Cristina Takeda September 19, 2013, 6:12 pm

    Would you please give us the name of the japanese mayonnese ? I live in Brazil and we have some stores that sells japanese products. I know the japanese mayonnese has diferentt flavor and I’d like to buy the right one ! Thanks

  • Dina September 19, 2013, 7:45 pm

    the potato salad sounds delish! enjoyed the post.

  • cooking rookie October 6, 2013, 8:54 pm

    Hi Nami, I posted a non-Japanese version of your salad (using regular mayo :-) ) and linked back to your blog. I think I’ll be making this for Thanksgiving again (which is next week here in Canada). Thanks for the recipe!

    • Nami October 7, 2013, 8:43 pm

      Thank you so much for trying this recipe! So happy you to hear you liked it. Just shared it on my fan page. :)

  • Rarufu November 4, 2013, 6:14 am

    Namiko-san. That really does look good! I think that I will try the that recipee sometime. Do you have a recipee for the Japanese spring rolls?

    • Nami November 5, 2013, 10:47 am

      Hi Rarufu! I hope you will like this potato salad. It’s our favorite potato salad for a long time. :) No, I haven’t posted any harumaki (Japanese spring rolls) yet. I’ve been thinking about writing the post for a while… but my harumaki includes lots of ingredients that I was afraid most people cannot get them. :/ I might need to make different version, but will try to share it someday in the future! Thank you for your request!

  • Carlyn November 5, 2013, 4:07 pm

    Oh…..Yummmm…..I love Japanese potato salad!!! I remember buying this in Japan!!! I never made it since it was always available already made~~~ Now, I think I must try to make your recipe!!!! ….a bit of Japan in my own kitchen!!!! Thank you~~~~~

    • Nami November 8, 2013, 3:33 pm

      Hi Carlyn! I hope you will give this a try. It’s simple and delicious! Thanks for following my blog. :)

  • Kate April 30, 2014, 10:07 am

    Tried this because I miss the potato salad in Japan! I was happy to discover I can make this! Thanks as always, Nami! Also, it’s tasty with or without the ham, for anyone who cares.

    • Nami April 30, 2014, 9:40 pm

      Hi Kate! I know, the potato salad in Japan is so good! I am relying on my own potato salad since I can’t eat it in Japan… Thanks for letting us know about the ham. :)

  • rachel March 11, 2015, 9:53 pm

    Amazing. I LOVE potato salad, and often eat it and then feel guilty afterward, but this recipe was super easy and delicious.

    • Nami March 11, 2015, 10:32 pm

      Thank you Rachel! I’m so glad you liked this recipe! Thank you for your kind feedback. :)
