  • 2Gather your ingredients.
  • 3Cut the potato into 1/8-inch (.3cm) slices.

  • 5Place the sliced potatoes into a bowl of cold water, and allow them to sit for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 6Rinse and drain the potatoes.
  • 7Add the cup of vinegar and water with the salt into a bowl, and stir until the salt is completely dissolved.
