I love potato salad but was told by my dietitian to try to eat more sweet potatoes/yams with my diabetes. So for the Memorial Day BBQ we had this year I put together this recipe and it was amazing! Even my husband liked it. He does not like different foods normally but he could not stop talking about this salad.
