Korean Style Mashed Potato Salad (Gamja-Salad)


My favorite side dish at Korean restaurants has got to be the sweet, creamy, mashed potato with a hint of crunch. I never get enough of it and even though most restaurants allow refills, it’s too embarrassing to ask for multiple refills, no? =P Heh heh. I don’t know why, but one day I decided to make my own Gamja-Salad. According to Maangchi, Korean style mashed potato salad is kind of a new term, hence the name which incorporates a mix of Korean (gamja = potato) and English (salad).

The ingredients are basic and can be found in most homes. So why not try making it yourself! It’s super easy and requires absolutely no skill. Heehee.
