Potato Salad with A Delicious Twist – It’s Made with Sweet Potatoes
Sweet potatoes are a family favorite, and so is sweet potato salad.
It’s easy to use them instead of regular potatoes in potato salad for an extra flavorful Summer side dish.
I buy sweet potatoes just about every week, so I can cook them every which way.
The look, flavor and nutrition are a perfect fit for my family.
It isn’t any harder to make this with sweet potatoes instead of regular ones, but the salad tastes great. And somehow it feels extra special. You can make it year round, but we tend to eat it more during warm Summer months.
This salad 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.
