How to make sweet potato salad
A friend of mine told me she loves the dressing in this sweet potato salad because it’s easy to remember: 2, 2, 2, and 4. That is, 2 tablespoons each of white wine vinegar, honey, and stone ground mustard, and 4 tablespoons olive oil. It always stuck with me that she liked that, and to this day if we have a chance to make a memorable ratio in a recipe, we do it.
Make up that dressing while you’re roasting the potatoes for this healthy potato salad. This recipe calls for both red potatoes and sweet potatoes, which are roasted in a very hot oven. Simply drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with kosher salt, and roast for about 30 minutes.
For the hard boiled eggs: it’s helpful to make them in advance. Here’s our method for stovetop hard boiled eggs. You can also use our Instant Pot hard-boiled eggs method if you have a pressure cooker. And when it comes to peeling, here’s how to make hard boiled eggs easy to peel.
The resulting healthy potato salad is a burst of flavor, with tangy and savory contrasting against the sweet potatoes. And who doesn’t love sweet potatoes? We hope you enjoy it as a main dish salad option for lunch or dinner – let us know if you happen to try it out!
