Reviews for Red and Sweet Potato Salad
"Delicious! I would suggest cooking the sweet potato for a little less time- mine turned out mushy... flavor was great!"
"It's pretty, tasty and healthy. What more could you ask for?"
"A different style of potato salad that is really tasty. I love the tang of the vinegar in the sauce. Nice change of pace from the traditional. I didn't have red onion, so I didn't use any, but it still was great."
