Healthy Potato Salad with Hardboiled Egg

It can be either a main or a side salad featuring roasted red potatoes, sweet potatoes, hard-boiled eggs and greens with our very favorite honey mustard vinaigrette.

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.

    Omg, I’m dying to try this and I feel so sheepish for never having tried putting potatoes and sweet potatoes together! It’s the perfect way to get the best of both worlds! Love this!
