    Easy to prepare! In my neighborhood in Osaka we usually have only two types of potatoes. The skin are a little bitter so I peeled them off. Had a bottle of “green peppercorn mustard “ so used it instead of Dijon mustard. Used “Apple vinegar “ from Aomori prefecture. Coconut oil instead of avocado oil. All ingredients I had in my kitchen stock. Great! This dish is delicious! Very light and flavorful.
