I made the 'Japanese Potato Salad' from justhungry.com and it was good. I modified the recipe because I didn't have a cucumber so I chopped up a rinsed dill pickle. Next time, I would try cutting back on the calories by using a mixture of yogurt & mayo instead of all mayo.

I read several Japanese cookbooks on potato salads and simmering the potatoes whole for 30-40 min was consistent in all of them. The justhungry.com recipe have you cook a whole carrot and boil the eggs with the potatoes and then peel and chop. I discovered it was easier to chop a cooked carrot than a raw carrot with this recipe. I like learning new stuff!

Oh man, I love croquettes! :D

Another site with good bento recipes is www.justbento.com. It's written by a health-conscious, food-loving Japanese woman who grew up in Japan, the U.S. and Britain and who now lives in, hmm, Switzerland, I think.

I was on a message board yesterday and we got on the topic of Bento and someone posted this site and I thought I would share it.
