    Ah girl you know I love the Korean inspired dishes! My boyfriend is starting to get on board with the whole kimchi thing and this looks like something he would eat up. Such a perfect summery dish. And you know I’m obsessed with your styling, beautiful yet again!!

    I am going into to hiding because the winter days in the southern hemisphere have seriously harshed my mellow. What I would give to be at your place! All I can say is WOW! at this salad! The spicy, tangy and textural feel to this potato salad makes it more of main than a side dish. Actually pass me a bowl of this and I would be happy πŸ™‚

      Hahaha omg “harshed my mellow” — YES. Ugh I feel you. Let’s just switch hemispheres every six months. Or all move to Hawaii.

    I really like fusion recipes where you brighten a staple with another staple and it turns just wonderful. Great idea and great photos. Spring brings me back to life too. And you really are at the fun part of the planning. Cherish it!

      I love that about staples, too! It’s like when you introduce your close friends to other close friends and they hit it off πŸ˜‰ The best. And you’re so right — we’ll definitely do our best to live in the moment πŸ™‚ it’s really such a fun, giddy time. Thanks so much for such sweet words, Amanda!

    Ohh I have been looking for a unique mayo-based potato salad recipe! It’s surprisingly hard to come by, so glad you posted this. Also, yayyy for the wedding getting closer! I can’t wait to see the pics!!!

    PS: I read the BL interview last week and LOVED it! You said at one point that the blog “both creates and preserves memories.” So well said and I could not agree with you more, Cynthia!

      YES to all of this!! Also a recent tater salad convert (high five) aaaand I’m pretty sure we are never taking that sticky-note explosion off the wall ever. Until they all lose their adhesiveness and start falling off.

    HA–weather is basically the dictator of how my day will go, all the time. Kind of sad, really–but I guess it’s a good thing that I live in California then, eh? Can’t complain–plus this salad! I have kimchi! I have potatoes! I’m getting ready to make this, whoo!

    This is such a fun fusion dish! I wasn’t a big fan of potato salad, but this might push me over the edge. It helps that 1) my husband LOVES potato salad and 2) I’m making a batch of kimchi as we speak, so I really don’t have an excuse, do I?

    So glad you’re enjoying the process of wedding planning. It’s so precious!!!

    YES. Yay for warmer weather (hopefully soon here too) and feeling like real human beings again! We are form Arizona and California so we feel you on relying so heavily on sunshine as a source of LIFE! Plus this recipe – kimchi! Brilliant, I just love it. So ready for a picnic now. Happy wedding planning you two bowls! So exciting! <3

    How did you know? I was beginning to wonder what to do with the rest of my kimchi batch and a potato salad is perfect for the upcoming long weekend. Many thanks from Nicole

    YAY for warm weather and picnics! It is still snowing here…enter GIANT sad face, but I am already making summer foods too, I mean, I can’t help it. Both potato salads looks amazing!

    Eeek, it’s like I’m re-living the wedding days through you all over again!!! ^_^ But one thing I’ll say–I absolutely hated the seating chart and I think it’s confirmation that I despise anything to do with coordinating things on paper.

    Also, how do you always come up with the yummiest and most clever ways of incorporating kimchi? This is lovely and I can’t wait to make it, Cynthia! It’s so simple there’s no excuse to NOT make it, right?

    The weather here hasn’t been quite as good as NYC by all accounts so we’re yet to break out the picnic-ware but I feel it’s only a matter of days and then this potato salad (with kimchi!!) has zoomed right to the top of the to-make list!

    First, I’m kinda excited I will finally get to meet you in NYC this year. And two, kimchi love on this post! I have a Korean-Japanese market two blocks from where I live and the kimchi aisle is my favorite. They have endless options of kimchi varieties that make it so exciting. Kimchi in potato salad is pure genius!

say hello!
