The base of this Japanese Potato Salad is created from red potatoes which offer a rich source of iron, potassium, and Vitamin C.
These wonderful nutrients provide just one of the reasons why this potato salad may turn into your favorite.
The fact that the potato salad also may help with energy, development of skin tissue, protection from free radical damage, and proper function of cells, tissues, and organs is an added bonus.
