Creamy and Sweet Japanese Potato Salad

December 23, 2013

Nowadays, many Japanese restaurants offer their own take on potato salad, tucked away in bento box corners. Japanese potato salad is milder, creamier and generally sweeter than American or German versions. Boiled carrot, sliced cucumber, onion, a little sugar and chopped boiled egg round out this Japanese-style potato salad from Just Hungry.
