This coincided perfectly with Yvo’s Bento Contest, so I figured that Japanese Potato Salad would be a perfect addition to a bento box. The way it turned out for me, it was just so-so, but I have a feeling this recipe would have turned out considerably better if I had more kitchen experience (have I ever steamed/boiled potatoes? No. I just make sushi. You get my point…).
