  • 4 slices bacon

  • 6 medium red new potatoes

  • 1 ⅓ cups mayonnaise

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • 1 teaspoon sugar

  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

  • teaspoon dry hot mustard

  • teaspoon salt

  • ¾ cup chopped bok choy

  • 1 medium red bell pepper, seeded and diced

  • ½ cup chopped green onion

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro


  1. Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain on paper towels and crumble when cool enough to handle.

  2. While the bacon is cooking, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes. Drain and let cool for 15 minutes. Chop into bite-sized chunks.

  3. Mix mayonnaise, soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, mustard powder, and salt together in a bowl until well combined.

  4. Combine potatoes, bacon, bok choy, bell pepper, green onion, and cilantro in a large bowl. Pour dressing over top and mix until well combined. Refrigerate until flavors have blended, at least 1 hour.
