Japanese Potato Salad

 This salad can be served warm or cold, either way it is makes a delicious side dish or appetizer! I served this with my Orange Miso Salmon. It is a great way to sneak in some vegetables in your meal if you have some fussy eaters. I have to say that there is no substitution for Japanese Kewpie Mayonnaise, so don’t even try to substitute for low fat or non-fat mayo. It is not going to be the same. I ran out of frozen corn, else I would have added it for that extra bite and sweetness, which will enhance all the other flavours! The recipe is really simple, and this dish can done in 30 minutes.
