Sweet Potato Salad

Sweet and white potatoes are combined in this scrumptious summertime side dish.

This is a pleasant twist on traditional potato salad.  The complexity in flavour of this dish is achieved with just a few simple ingredients and a relatively small amount of prep time.  This dish makes the perfect side for summer barbecues. Try it with grilled sausage or slow roasted baby back ribs or with your favourite Schnitzel any time of the year.
