If you’ve never had Korean-style potato salad, you’re seriously missing out. Known as gamja saelleodeu, Thrillist explains the creamy, flavorful side is a type of banchan (or little side dishes) that commonly accompany Korean barbecue. In our book, all Korean BBQ sides make an excellent addition to any cookout, and this one’s pretty simple to make so it’s perfect for those inexperienced with the cuisine.
Our Korean potato salad recipe is made by boiling potatoes, passing them through a ricer, and then adding boiled carrot coins, chopped cucumbers, chopped hard-boiled eggs, and minced red onion. Everything is mixed with apple cider vinegar and mayonnaise for a perfectly creamy, slightly tart side. For bonus presentation points, serve the potato salad with an ice cream scoop and top with a showering of grated hard-boiled egg yolk.
