Chinese Potato Salad


  • 5-6 medium potatoes (about 2½ pounds)
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
  • ¾ cup chopped bok choy
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • ½ cup chopped green onion
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • Sauce:
  • 1 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1to 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • ¼ teaspoon hot mustard powder, or less to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


  1. Boil the potatoes until cooked but still firm. When cool enough to handle, cut into potato salad-sized chunks. Place potatoes in a large bowl with the chopped bok choy, diced red pepper, chopped green onion, and chopped cilantro.
  2. Combine the sauce ingredients in a small bowl, adjusting the amount of sesame oil and hot mustard to your taste.
  3. Pour sauce over potato mixture and gently fold until well combined.
  4. Chill for at least an hour or more before serving.
