Japanese Potato Salad

April 22, 2022

This easy and quick Japanese-style potato salad is a great addition to any meal. This recipe can be made all in one pot–boil your eggs and veggies together! Try adding chunks of cucumber or fresh peas at the end for a twist. The most important ingredient is the Japanese style mayonnaise which will bring it all together.
