Sweet Potato Salad: The Tastiest Side Dish to Bring to Gatherings

Sweet Potato Salad

If you love potato salad, you’ll LOVE this ultra tasty version. 🙂

Many moons ago I volunteered as a recipe tester for a site I now can’t remember. They wanted feedback on recipes they had created (i.e. what can be added to the recipe, reduced, how easy it is to make, does it taste good, etc) and I was lucky enough to re-create their Sweet Potato Salad.

Since then, it’s been a huge family favorite and I’m constantly making it for BBQ’s, family gatherings, and just when we want some healthyish (which is stretching it a bit lol) comfort food.

Try it out and let me know in the comments what you think!
