Macaroni Salad with Spring Vegetables Recipe | Cooking with Dog


Hi, I’m Francis, the host of this show “Cooking with Dog.” Konnichiwa! Today, we are making Macaroni Salad with lots of spring vegetables. First, let’s cook the macaroni. Make 1 percent salt water in a pot and bring it to a boil. Put the macaroni into the pot. The cooking time varies depending on the product so follow the instructions on the package or slightly overcook it for better results. Now, drain the macaroni with a mesh strainer. Drop the strainer on a kitchen towel multiple times to thoroughly remove the water. Drizzle on a small amount of olive oil and toss to coat. This will help avoid any stickiness. Next, let’s prepare the vegetables. Cut the spring cabbage leaves into 1cm (0.4″) pieces. Spring cabbage is more tender and has a sweeter flavor than regular cabbage. Place the cabbage into a clean plastic bag. Next, with a mandoline slicer, thinly slice the cucumber. Thinly slice the onion along the grain. New onions are less pungent than regular onions so it is great for salads. Place all the vegetables into the bag and add the salt and 1 tablespoonful of water. Close the bag but leave the air inside. Shake it to coat the vegetables with the salt. Adding a small amount of water will help to season the vegetables evenly. Remove the air from the bag and let it sit for about 10 minutes. These are crab sticks, which look like real crab meat but they are actually made of fish cake. Tear them into thin strips. Crab sticks are inexpensive so they are often used in salad, fried rice or Tenshinhan, crab meat omelet on top of rice. And now, let’s make the macaroni salad. Thoroughly squeeze out the liquid from the vegetables. Then, place the vegetables into a bowl. Remove the moisture with a paper towel. Add the ham slices cut into 1cm (0.4″) strips. Then add the crab sticks and boiled corn kernels. Add in the macaroni. Next, add the whole grain mustard to the mayonnaise and stir to mix well. Add the mayonnaise to the macaroni. Gently toss the salad to coat. Coating the macaroni with olive oil beforehand will also help it avoid getting soggy. Now, add the boiled egg cut into one eighth pieces but save 2 pieces for topping. Add the coarsely ground black pepper. Then, lightly mix the salad. Place the macaroni salad onto a plate. Finally, garnish with the sliced eggs. If the cabbage leaves are too firm, lightly boil them to make the texture more palatable. Alternatively, you can also add tuna to the salad. The macaroni adds bulk making this a substantial salad. The spring vegetables give it a pleasant crunchy texture, making it extra delicious.” When you use regular onions, soak the slices in water to make them less pungent. Good luck in the kitchen!

  5. Looks like this would make a better meal than a side. Here in the united states macaroni salad is normally a side item rather than the main.

  6. Hey Chef I'd like to ask, in what kind of area do you live? We've seen you and Francis travel to so many areas but I'm wondering what kind of place you call home

  9. It's not that hard to make salad, this is so overly complicated!! >_<
    Also, eating oily macaroni with chopsticks sounds really difficult, hehe

  10. If your onions aren't young, you can simply leave them sliced up in a small bowl of water. Leave for about 10-15 minutes and stir twice. Drain and pat dry. This avoids the strong onion breath even with low quality supermarket onions.

  11. Pasta salads like this are so great for warmer weather. Thanks for the tip on adding Tuna instead of crab meat!

  12. Thank you as always Chef! I wondered if you could do something similar to the crab salads they have in Japanese supermarkets? I do miss them sooo much and would love be able to treat my friends here in Sweden.

  13. Yeaaaah, Chef and Franci i love the pasta, it's a nice option combine with vegetables, and can be an exelent veggie meal that can create a good balance to eat a nice meal, very good!!😋😋

  14. 저도 푸들 키우고 있는데 귀여운 푸들도 보고 동서양 요리 골고루 볼 수 있어서 좋은 채널인 것 같아요. 맛있는 음식 계속해서 많이 보여주세요!
    =^ㅅ^=

  15. I suggest a quick rinse in cold water for pasta used in a salad before the draining and olive oil. This not only stops cooking it will remove a little starch clinging to the noodles. In cold salad this can become a little gummy.

  16. Made this and it was so delicious! I just replaced the crab imitation with tuna and it will still delicious… yum :9

  17. 私のやり方が悪いのかもしれませんが、日本語字幕が5行も10行も出てくるのはなにか意味があるのでしょうか?

  26. I am going to try this to try the technique of salting the chopped vegetables, then squeezing out excess water. Have never tried that technique. It looks delicious. These videos, which I only discovered recently, are such a delight. Chef is wonderful.
