Japanese Potato Salad

One of my favorite Japanese restaurant in the town have this potato salad. We can order one portion of potato salad or order a bento and they will serve your bento with some potato salad. I like the freshness of this salad because i can feel the authentic taste of Japanese cuisine.

So, when i am surfing in youtube. i found this recipe from ochikeron you tube channel and i am really looking forward can try this recipe as soon as possible although i don't have Japanese mayonnaise which is the really important ingredients here. I only use regular mayonnaise and hope the taste will approach to the one i eat an japanese restaurant. But, too bad to say i only got 50% similar japanese potato salad with the resto, surely must use japanese mayonnaise next time.

To note it that must drain well every single vegetable in ingredients such as onion, cucumber,etc. Just like mine, because i did not drain it well so my potato salad become a little bit soggy in next day (i make it in night time).
