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

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.
1/2 cup grapeseed or olive oil
1/2 cup sunflower oil
