Japanese Potato Salad

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 30min
Number of servings: 4

300g (10.6oz.) potato
50g (1.8oz.) carrot
50g (1.8oz.) onion
50g (1.8oz.) cucumber
2 cooked sliced ham
1/2 cup whole kernel corn (canned)
1/2 tbsp. vinegar (rice or cereal)
4 tbsp. mayonnaise
salt and pepper

1. Slice the onion, sprinkle with a bit of salt, then leave for 2~3 minutes until tender. Wash and drain well with paper towel. *in this way you can remove the bitter taste and unwanted smell of the onion.
2. Slice the cucumber into thin rounds (you can use a vegetable slicer if you have). Sprinkle with a bit of salt. When they become tender, drain well with paper towel. *removing extra water from cucumber will help not make the salad soggy.
3. Cut sliced ham into 1/2inch (1cm) square pieces.
4. Slice the potato into 1/2inch (1cm) half rounds. Place them in a pot, lightly wash (to remove extra starch), add water until covered, add 1/2 tsp. salt, then put on the heat. When it becomes to a boil, turn down to medium and cook for about 12 minutes. Check with a skewer, when they are done, drain well, transfer into a bowl and mash them with a fork while they are hot. Season with 1/2 tbsp. vinegar, salt and pepper. *these seasonings will make the potato tasty.
5. Slice the carrot into 0.1inch (3mm) quarter rounds. Cook in a boiling water for 3 minutes, then drain well.
6. When the potato and carrot are cool enough, combine all the ingredients together in one bowl, then season with 4 tbsp. mayonnaise, salt and pepper.
