Izakaya-style Potato Salad

Ingredients: Serves 4 side dish portions

  • 2 large potatoes
  • ¼ onion, sliced thinly
  • 1 hard-boiled egg, chopped
  • 4 Tbsp. Kewpie Mayonnaise
  • Kewpie Deep Roasted Sesame Dressing (to drizzle)
  • Lettuce leaves, torn by hand into bite-size pieces (optional)


  1. Wash the potatoes and wrap them in a paper towel. Place in a microwave-safe dish and cover loosely with plastic wrap. Microwave on high for about 4 to 5 minutes, or until the potatoes are cooked through. Be cautious when removing them, as they will be extremely hot.
  2. Once slightly cooled, peel and roughly mash the potatoes in a bowl. Set aside.
  3. In a separate small bowl, immerse the sliced onions in water. After a moment, drain and pat them dry with a paper towel. Add the onions to the potato mixture.
  4. Add the mayonnaise and chopped egg to the potato mixture and combine well.
  5. If using lettuce, arrange it on the serving plate. Top with the potato salad and generously drizzle with the Kewpie Deep Roasted Sesame Dressing.
  6. Serve immediately.
