Sweet Potato Salad

By DairyFreeGina

DAIRY FREE VEGAN GLUTEN FREE PLANT BASED

This is a great twist on the classic white potato, mayonnaise based salad. My salad is a healthier version made with sweet potatoes and no mayo! It’s easy to make and the recipe can be doubled or tripled to serve a crowd. A great summer salad and so colorful, too, on your fall dinner table. This recipe serves 4-6 and is Dairy Free, Vegan and Gluten Free.
