This idea came to me a while back: If you can have a potato salad then why not a sweet potato salad? I started with no preconceived notions about what should go into it. It certainly didn’t have to be the same as regular potato salad. This is what I came up with. It was a hit the first time and has been a hit several times since then. You may want to experiment with other ingredients.

Sweet Potato Salad

Ingredients

  • 2 - 2½ pounds Sweet Potatoes
  • 2 Small Jalapenos seeded and chopped fine. Leave seeds in for a spicier salad.

  • ½ cup chopped chives or green onions
  • ¼ tsp dill weed
  • Juice of 2 lemons or limes
  • ¼ cup Olive Oil

  3. Combine all ingredients.
  4. Refrigerate for 1 hour or more before serving.
  5. Enjoy.
