  1. So…are you Japanese?

    I had never thought about Japanese having a different kind of potato salad; potato salad seems to me to be so very American! But, when in Brazil, I learned about their potato salad, which is delicious, and uses beets as well as other vegetables.

    I am going to try this! We buy red potatoes by the 50-lb bag, lol. Growing boys and all!

    Thank you so much for sharing!

    1. Now I am super curious about Brazilian Potato Salad. I am not Japanese, I am just fascinated by other cultures. Hawaii ha also has its own spin on potato salad. I have had it with macadamia nuts and pineapple.

    1. Japanese Potato Salad is traditional in that it is rather opposite of American Potato Salad which has copious amounts of Mayo and it includes sweet and savory flavors plus a mix of textures.
