You may remember that I published a Japanese potato salad recipe a little while ago. Here's a variation on the theme using sweet potato instead of the humble generic one. I like the sweet potatoes you can find in the UK - unlike the sweet potatoes you find in Japan, the ones I buy in the UK have a softer flesh.

Along with the sweet potato, I used half a pepper, some cucumber, some peas and some raisins. The aim here is to produce a sweeter flavour to accentuate the sweet potato. The cucumber has the seeds removed and then it's slightly salted and given a good squeeze before adding it to the salad - that way, your salad doesn't become watery. When the sweet potato is cooked, just mash it enough to break it into fragments - you don't want a perfect puree smooth mash for this recipe. I use Japanese Kewpie brand mayonnaise for this recipe but if you can't get hold of it, you could just use a low fat mayonnaise instead.

I like to think of this as a quintessential summer salad - whenever I make a bowl of this, it also disappears in minutes so I think it'll get the thumbs up in your household as well!

Happy cooking! Kurumi XXXX.
