Easy Sweet Potato Salad

Easy Sweet Potato Salad

Sweet potatoes are a family favorite. I buy them just about every week and cook them every which way. It’s easy to use them instead of regular potatoes in potato salad for an extra flavorful Summer side dish.

This recipe is good to serve at home or to take to a picnic or potluck. You can double or triple the recipe, if you’ll be cooking for a crowd.
