  • 2 large potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 skinny cucumbers Japanese
  • 1 medium carrot
  • ¼ medium onion
  • 8 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons salad dressing French
  • 1 tablespoon sugar


  • Wash potatoes and cut out any eyes. Place in salted water and bring to a boil for about 30 minutes. Don’t peel because they may become watery.
  • When they seem done, take them out of the water, drain and cut them into quarters, removing the skin.
  • Put the potatoes into a bowl and squish them with a spatula; add sugar and heated French dressing if making a special dressing version.
  • Slice cucumber (with skin on) into thin rounds, preferably in a food processor. Sprinkle with salt and leave to wilt.
  • Slice carrots into thin rounds as well, blanching so they are no longer raw but still crunchy. Slice onions very thin (in a food processor) and immerse in salted water. When cucumber and onion look slightly wilted, drain and rinse with cold water, and then pat dry or wring dry in a cloth.
  • Add vegetables to the potatoes and mix, adding mayonnaise and mixing them. (You can increase or decrease the mayo to taste.) For a more “adult” flavour, add 1 tablespoon of dry mustard. Optional.
