Pleasant and refreshing, and different from the regular potato salads? The secret recipe for Japanese potato salad, which I haven't seen in any Japanese cookbooks: you mash the potatoes and you must use Japanese mayo, you know, that yellow squeezable tube with the drawing of a Casper-lookalike.

I have not tried it with sweet potato, but I'll definitely try it the next time.
