Japanese Macaroni Salad

I love Japanese mayonnaise. It is one of my favorite condiments and I highly recommend it over American or western mayonnaise. Japanese mayonnaise taste different because they use a different type of vinegar such as apple or rice vinegar. The mayonnaise is also prepared differently by eliminating water for a thicker consistency. There are also a lot of different types of Japanese mayonnaise including zero cholesterol but they all taste great to me. This is one of my favorite sides and I recently found out that Chai loves this dish! He couldn’t stop eating it because it was so addictingly good! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do! It’s a perfect dish for home or to bring to a BBQ or summer party! 😊
