Sweet Potato Salad

Wow has it been a month already?

My break from this blog was great and I got re-inspired to make some fun recipes. Hope you enjoy the recipes I have lined up in the chute!

I'm always looking for new uses for sweet potatoes, since my family will eat them in almost any form! So when I got a sweet potato, apple and celery in with my Produce Club basket, I thought we'd give this a try.

This recipe is originally from the South Beach Diet Cookbook, and although we aren't doing the South Beach Diet, this cookbook seems to have recipes without too many processed foods.

The verdict?
Everyone gobbled it right up at dinner! The cookbook says this would be a good alternative for the classic potato salad, but I thought it was on the sweet side. I also added a sliced green onion, because I have a ton of them, and wanted to add a little savory to the mix.

I am also sharing this recipe at The Grocery Cart Challenge Recipe Swap. Check out all the great recipes over there.
