Sweet Potato Salad

Robin DuPree


This is a very quick and simple potato salad to make for any special occasion. My son and I loved this potato salad, and I plan to make this again real soon in the future...A nice variation to the palate...I found this recipe in a cookbook called, "Potatoes" as well...
