Winter-inspired sweet potato salad

Here’s a flavor-packed wintertime twist on a summertime classic. I love experimenting with new recipes for sweet potatoes because they are so versatile and easy to prepare. This recipe is filled with fiber, vitamins and other phytonutrients. To choose the best sweet potatoes, look for even color and firm skin.
