So pretty, so delicious, and SO on your diet! As a rule, white potatoes are not allowed on a no- or low-carb diet. But sweet potatoes, in moderation, are definitely on the list, so why not make something different with them?
     The ginger gives it a sweet bite, and the homemade mayo just makes it, if you know what I mean. Icing on our proverbial cake.
Perfect for those of us who are diabetic, on a diet, or not!

SWEET POTATO SALAD

4 cups sweet potatoes, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 cup homemade mayo, see recipe below
4-5 small green onions, diced
1/2 cup diced red pepper
1/4 cup diced fresh parsley, any variety
2-3 tablespoons fresh grated ginger
Salt to taste (optional)

Boil cut potatoes until softened. Set aside to cool completely. Make mayonnaise and refrigerate until potatoes are completely cooled. 

In a large bowl, toss in green onions, red pepper, parsley, ginger and mayo and mix well, making sure mayo is incorporated throughout.

Refrigerate at least an hour before serving. 

Homemade mayo:
1 egg
1/2 cup grapeseed or olive oil
1/2 cup sunflower oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground mustard

Add egg, salt, red pepper and mustard to food processor and blend for 1 minute. Slowly stream oils into mixture as processor continues to blend. Transfer to a bowl or other container and refrigerate 1-2 hours to allow mayo to set.
