Looking to make a more unconventional potato salad during the week? Make this Creamy Idaho® Potato Salad with Kimchi that incorporates zesty Korean-inspired flavors and textures including a traditional fermented vegetable medley, a staple of Korean cuisine. Made with Yukon Gold Idaho® potatoes, kimchi, mayonnaise, sour cream, scallions, olive oil, garlic, toasted sesame seeds and salt, this tater salad is savory and delicious. Remember to cook the potatoes until they are “fork tender” as overcooking the potatoes will lead to a mushy and lumpy potato salad. Plate it with some barbecued ribs or grilled veggies for a delicious summertime meal.



  1. Place potatoes in a large pot and boil enough water to cover the potatoes. Add a sprinkle of salt. Cook the potatoes for 15 minutes or until they can be poked with a fork.
  2. While they boil, sauté the kimchi and garlic with the oil, so the kimchi will reduce in size a bit. Cook for about 8 minutes and remove from heat.
  3. Once the potatoes are ready, mix them with the kimchi and add the mayo and sour cream. Add a sprinkle of salt if needed. Mix well and and serve with a sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds and chopped scallions.
