Kimchi Potato Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by janice.omalley

Being half Korean, I am always looking for ways to fuse my love of kimchi into pretty much anything that I make. After making this potato salad, I HAD to write this one down. It was fabulous. This recipe is a smaller batch recipe since I assumed most of my friends coming over do not have the same taste for kimchi as I do. This is such an easy recipe to manipulate according to taste and spice level. I used a potato medley from Costco that had small purple potatoes, yukons, and red potatoes.

Needs more kimchi, kimchi juice (oh, and a reference to adding the kimchi). I would also add some korean pepper powder if you have for a true bite. We all liked the initial first few bites but then the combination of creamy and mushy became unpleasant.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put potatoes in a pot of cold water and a handful of salt. Boil roughly 15-18 minutes. (Do not over boil or it will fall apart)
  2. Rinse with cold water so that you can cut the potatoes in half without burning your fingers. Cut potatoes in half and then pour 1 1/2 Tbsp of apple cider vinegar. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the mayo, sugar, salt, gochujang, and remaining 1/2 Tbsp of apple cider vinegar.
  4. In a large bowl, add the shredded carrot (you can use the large cheese grater setting), sliced green onion, and chopped cilantro.
  5. Add the mayo dressing and the potatoes to the large bowl and mix gently. Refrigerate, then enjoy.
