Sweet Potato Waldorf Salad
I came up with this recipe when I promised to bring a potato salad to a picnic but had no regular potatoes on hand. The sweet potatoes were there, so I revised by regular potato salad recipe and a new dish was born! Adding the apples was an extra touch and everybody loved it.
