Recipe By:NainInCandia
“Want to try a new and completely different potato salad? Then look no further. The ingredients – bok choy, cilantro, soy sauce and sesame oil – blend together beautifully to give a unique Asian slant to a potato salad.”


  • 4 slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled
  • 6 new red potatoes
  • 1 1/3 cups mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon dry hot mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup chopped bok choy
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro


  1. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes. Drain, cool, and chop into bite-size chunks.
  3. To make the dressing, mix together the mayonnaise, sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, mustard powder, and salt.
  4. Combine the potatoes, bacon, bok choy, red pepper, green onion and cilantro in a large bowl. Pour over dressing and mix well. Refrigerate for at least one hour to allow flavors to blend, and serve.
