2) Cut the cucumber, potatoes and carrot into quarter slices.
3) Add a pinch of salt to the cucumber slices and rub the salt evenly.
4) Put the potatoes and carrot bits in a pot of water that is filled with salt and bring the pot of water to a boil.
5) Remove the sweet corn from step 1) and cut out the corn bits.
6) Drain the potatoes and carrot bits from step 4) and put into large bowl.
7) Lightly mash the potatoes and carrot bits while adding in vinegar, sugar and black pepper.
8) Use kitchen towels to squeeze dry the cucmber slices from step 2) and add it into the bowl.
9) Add in the corn bits and mayonnaise and mix the ingredients.
10) Serve the potatoe salad.

Mr. Robotic thinks the potato salad is one of those dishes that can't go too wrong. Mr. Robotic totally did not follow the portions in the original recipe and just added the quantity as he deemed appropriate.

The best part though is it can be kept in the fridge and used as a side dish for the next meal. Mr. Robotic had it as a side for his eggs and sausages and pan seared salmon fish.
The colors are nice too! :)
