How to Make Japanese Potato Salad


  1. Note: I used Yukon gold potatoes for this recipe. Red potatoes will also work.
  2. Peel and dice the potatoes small. Steam the potatoes until almost cooked. I also steamed the edamame in the same pot but not as long of course.
  3. Set the steamed potatoes and edamame aside to cool.
  4. Once the potatoes have cooled, transfer them to a serving bowl. Stir in the remaining salad ingredients. Cover and chill at least 3 hours.
  5. Just before serving, garnish the top of the potato salad.
