Sweet Potato Salad

We love Sweet Potatoes and serve them often as a side dish. I had a lot of fun developing this Sweet Potato Salad. This salad has so many layers of flavor it was a big hit at the table. Our family just loved it and sure hope you enjoy it!

    The recipe I have calls for roasted sweet potatoes, cubed, chopped apple, craisins, chopped pecans, chopped or sliced celery, and chopped red onion. The dressing is either a honey mustard & apple juice mix or a cranberry vinaigrette.
