Before we come to the potato salad recipes, it is necessary to talk about potatoes first. Potatoes are one of the five big substance that human being live on. They are indispensable from the diets of both the East and the West.
In my opinion, potatoes are so popular on the dinning table because they can be cooked in various ways. They can be steamed, toasted, stir-fried and even made into salads. I made a challenge of living on potatoes for one whole week without repeating recipes. I found out that countless potato recipes are available if you really look into them. You can see a spot in the potato salad recipes that we are going to talk about below.
To make salads, the ingredients should be edible at first. That is why fruits are often used for salads. However, potatoes can not be eaten raw. So they have to be madeible in advance. There are two methods that can be used to do this in the Chinese cuisine – steaming and scaling.
In my opinion, steaming is the easiest way. All that we need to do is washing the potatoes clean, putting them into a steamer, placing the steamer on a pot containing some water and turning the heat on. However, scaling immersing boiling water, shredding the potatoes and training the shreds.
After the potato is done, we need to cut the steamed potato into any shape that we like and then season them in order to complete the potato salad recipes. In this step, you can just rely on your preferences for tastes and flavors. I like such seasonings as soy sauce and soy bean paste.
All that is left now is blending the seasonings and potato shreds or dices together.
