We are sweet potato fans in our home . . . so while tinkering in the kitchen today canning plum jelly and apple sauce, this salad came to mind. My husband would want to add eggs, which you can do . . . along with celery and whatever other additives you like in potato salad, but he wasn't on hand to help . . . so I made it "Em style" I guess. Meaning that since I am not a huge egg and celery fan I avoided the two. This salad was really good. I will definitely try it again. It would be awesome to add red skin or yukon gold in with the sweet potatoes too. We'll have to try it that way next time!
Congrats Mutterlein on another teaching award! You are the bomb.com mom! Way to go!
